Plot Details & Description

Plot Comprises

The plot is situated in the heart of the Scottish Borders not far from the popular town of Coldstream.

It is understood that there are no developers’ contributions to be paid as planning was granted before these contributions were required.

Mains water is at the site and electricity is understood to be nearby. Drainage will be to a septic tank that will need to be installed by the buyer.

Planning permission was granted in September 2006 and is now valid “for all time coming” due to work having been completed on the access track.

More specific details can be found on the Scottish Borders Council website by quoting Planning Reference Number 06/01446/FUL.
