Access

The land benefits from good access and road frontage off Westwood Lane and the A31. Full vehicular right of way is provided to all lots via an easement (shown blue on the site plan).

Land Prices

Pasture land values in the region are 12% higher than the England & Wales average and some of the highest in the country.

The supply of farmland to the market last year was down 16% compared to the previous year, and down 8% compared to the 10-year average. Demand for land remains robust – especially from investors looking for more than a ‘safe’ investment in uncertain times – and this together with the diminishing supply, may help strengthen land values.

Local Development

The land is west of that which has received planning permission to demolish an agricultural barn and replace with a 450 sq.m. new house.

There is a significant demand for new housing in the region. The highest need is in the Borough of Guildford, which has a requirement of 654 new homes per year until 2033. The Borough of Guildford’s Local Plan identifies how land is used, determining what and will be built and where. The proposed Local Plan published in June 2017 plans to build thousands of homes across several Green Belt sites.

These sites include; 1,800 new homes at Blackwell Farm part of the University of Surrey, at least 1,700 new homes at Gosden Hill Farm, 2,000 at the former Wisley Airfield and 400 at Garlick’s Arch.

The proposed Blackwell Farm development within the Green Belt is just 2 miles from the land for sale. Plans include; 1,800 new homes; local amenities; an extension of the Surrey Research Park; retail units and business park; a primary school and a secondary school. Development on the fields of Blackwell Farm would leave “little hope for the rest of the green belt”, a campaign group has said.

Planning

As with all the southern half of the Borough of Guildford, the land is designated as an Area of Great Landscape Value. The land also falls within the Green Belt and the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Any development would be subject to the appropriate planning permission.

House Prices

The land is situated in an extremely affluent area where land and property values are amongst the most expensive in the UK. House prices in Wanborough are 91% above the county average, 179% above the regional average and 268% above the national average. These premium house prices reflect the desirability of Guildford as a place to live and own property – including land.

Overage

The land is subject to an Overage based on 20% of any uplift in value following the grant of planning permission for development other than for agricultural, equestrian or forestry purposes. The Overage period is 80 years.
