A parcel of Green Belt land extending to around 1.379 Ha (3.40 acres) or thereabouts, which slopes away from Platt Lane, facing west, and runs down towards the river Tame, with two areas that adjoin the river itself. It is steep in parts, and wooded, and there appears to be several footpaths that cross the site. The land could suit animal husbandry, or be ideal for a family to coppice, and enjoy their own slice of peaceful countryside, surrounded by wildlife. Adjacent land is used for grazing horses. The boundary along Platt Lane is the narrowest part of the land, does not have vehicle access, or a dropped kerb, and lies on the crest of Platt Lane, on a bend. The site is overgrown and we understand that there is little likelihood of obtaining planning consent for development.
