Large plot of land for residential development in Symington up for sale at auction
A sizeable plot of land with the potential for houses to be built in the village of Symington near Biggar is going under the hammer at a guide price of £695,000+.
The brownfield plot which sits on the edge of the South Lanarkshire village, around 3 miles from the town of Biggar, extends to approximately 5.7 acres (2.3 ha) and offers a builder/developer a significant development opportunity.
For sale with property auctioneers, Auction House Scotland, the plot previously had approved planning permission granted in 2010 under South Lanarkshire Ref. CL/10/0022 (now lapsed) for a 41-unit residential development with associated roads, parking and open space. South Lanarkshire Development Plan 2015 identifies the site as a residential development opportunity.
The site is located within easy reach of Symington’s local amenities which include a petrol station, convenience store with post office, hotel and restaurant, and primary schooling. The nearby towns of Biggar and Lanark (10 miles away) offer a wider range of amenities and services, including secondary schooling.
The plot is also well placed for excellent road connections, with the M74 (Glasgow to the north and Carlisle to the south) approximately 13 miles away and the A702 (to Edinburgh) less than 3 miles away.
Mandi Cooper, managing director of Auction House Scotland, said: “This plot’s location within a charming village setting, yet within easy reach of the larger towns of Biggar and Lanark alongside the strong motorway connections for commuters make it an attractive residential development opportunity.
“There is exciting Gross Development Value (GDV) on offer here and we invite anyone interested to get in touch with our Auction House team for more information about the site and our upcoming auction.”
The plot of land is due to go under the hammer at Auction House Scotland’s next in-room auction taking place at 2.00pm on Thursday 3rd November at the Radisson RED hotel, 25 Tunnel Street, Glasgow, however pre-auction offers are being considered.
