Agricultural Buildings & Land for Sale in Feckenham, Worcestershire

Why buy land & buildings for sale in Feckenham?

An extremely rare opportunity for you to own up to 13.86 acres of pasture land together with a range of large agricultural buildings of varied construction. These buildings – totalling approximately 458m2 – have been in place well before March 2013 and are accessed from the road via a stoned track.

Under amendments to Permitted Development Rights introduced in April 2014, it is now possible to convert existing agricultural buildings into homes without needing to expressly apply for planning permission. Indeed there are many examples of agricultural buildings successfully gaining permission to convert into residential dwellings in the area. Notably, there are five sites within 1.5 miles of the site that have all been granted permission to convert agricultural buildings into residential dwellings.

The agricultural buildings are surrounded by over 13 acres of lush pasture land that is available as a whole or in 3 separate lots. The site benefits from good road frontage and several entrance points off Berrowhill Lane. It also enjoys some of the most spectacular views in the area over beautiful rolling countryside.

The site is pleasantly situated within the highly sought-after and affluent village of Feckenham, south-west of Redditch, east of Worcester and south of Birmingham.

Land Prices

Pasture land values in this region increased by 3% in the last 6 months and are 24% higher than the England & Wales average – the highest in the country (RICS Rural Land Market Survey).

Traditionally land has been seen as a ‘safe haven’ for investors, outperforming other asset classes. Over the past 10-years, farmland has outgrown Prime Central London Residential Property by 33%, UK House Prices by 38% and the FTSE 100 by 32% (Knight Frank).

Furthermore the demand for land continues to outstrip supply. 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 (Savills).

Permitted Development Rights for Agricultural Buildings

Amendments to Permitted Development Rights introduced in April 2014 have transformed the landscape for anyone wishing to undertake a barn conversion in England.

As a result of the amendment, it will now be possible to convert existing agricultural buildings into homes without needing to expressly apply for planning permission, as had previously been the case.

It permits building operations to convert a barn into a house, but only within the envelope of the existing structure up to a maximum of 465m². The development can be divided into up to five separate dwellings and it permits partial demolition and rebuilding of the barn.

Local Development

There are numerous examples on the local borough council’s website of agricultural buildings successfully gaining permission to convert into residential dwellings.

Notably, there are five sites within 1.5 miles of the land for sale that have all been granted permission to convert agricultural buildings into residential dwellings:
