Watling Street, Leadgate, Consett, DH8

Guide price

For Sale By Public Auction. Taking bids now under Option 2 - A plot of land - approximately 0.14 acres - situated between existing terraces on Watling Street, close to Leadgate village centre, with a proposal for the erection of a new, red-brick Mews-style development of affordable houses on this site of a former Methodist Church.

In response to the development proposal, by North View Architecture - to build four new three-bedroomed properties with private gardens and off-street parking - the Full Pre-Application Advice Report was issued in February 2021, stating in conclusion that 'whilst a housing proposal could be supported in principle there are a number of areas where the scheme requires amendments, particularly in relation to the number of dwellings, before a favourable recommendation could be made.'

Any development of the land would be subject to a full planning application and to approval by Durham County Council's Planning Committee.

Images of the proposed plans are included here; pdf files of the plans and the Planning Officer's Full Pre-Application Advice Report can be provided on request.

Watling Street is situated in Leadgate village, where there are some shops and facilities close to the central crossroads. There are local infant and junior schools within a quarter-of-a-mile, while Consett town centre is less than a mile-and-a-half away, where there are further facilities and amenities. The regional centres of Durham and Newcastle are both approximately 12 miles along the A691 and A692 respectively.

Each auction property is offered at a guide price and is also subject to a reserve price. The guide price is the level where the bidding will commence. The reserve price is the sellers minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price, which may be up to 10% higher than the guide price, is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. The successful buyer pays a £1000+vat (Total £1200) Auction Administration Fee.
