The sale of 43 Lickhill Road, Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 8SL, is being handled by the Stourport on Severn office of Phipps & Pritchard on 01299 822060 or If desired, there is also full planning consent for demolition and re-development with three detached houses. A copy of the Wyre Forest District Council Decision Notice along with a complete set of the approved plans and supporting documents are available upon request and can also be emailed.

BACKGROUND – 43 Lickhill Road has been within the ownership of the same family for 50 years and is now to be sold under instructions from Executors in order to close an estate. Whilst we have not undertaken a survey on the property there are no inherent issues with the house that we as agents are aware of. That is said in the context that the thinking behind the planning consent is for no reason other than to simply just to broaden its market appeal. That is also the USP of this opportunity, in that, although there is consent to re-develop the site the existing property has been well maintained and would continue to function perfectly well 'as is'. This is a valuable consideration for a number of reasons. Firstly, it offers a far better opportunity for secured lending purposes versus virgin building land. Secondly, anyone not perhaps looking to make a quick start upon development will have an instant asset to either occupy personally or derive an immediate rental income from. Thirdly, it is a lovely house in a lovely location and it would not be a total surprise if a new owner might just simply wish to retain it! Another, ‘half-way house’ could even be to retain the existing house and perhaps develop only one property to the rear albeit it must be stressed that this would require further express consent. There was, however, a lapsed Approval for this type of scheme, Approved in April, 2010 under application number 10/0132/FULL. The point is that there are many great options.

THE CONSENTED SCHEME - The site has full Planning Permission under application number 20/0715/FULL for a THREE luxury detached houses and the approval is very recently dated 17 December 2020 - 20/0715/FUL thereby giving the purchaser plenty of time in which to start the construction.
