A rare opportunity to acquire an Option to Purchase a development opportunity in the sought after conservation village of Great Dalby just South of Melton Mowbray. The land extends to around half an acre with its own separate access and pre-application discussions with the local planning authority have revealed that residential development would be considered subject to the usual planning process. Topographical survey, Ecology Reports and other surveys have been done and would be available and the developed scheme would offer a superb location adjoining open farmland.

Great Dalby Village lies approximately 3 miles south of Melton Mowbray and approximately 10 miles North West of the Rutland County town of Oakham. Great Dalbys' population is around 350 according to the 2011 census and the village church is a Grade 2* listed Building. Being a conservation Village, Great Dalby has retained its historical feel and appearance and is a very popular residential area. Leicester City centre is around 18 miles away and Nottingham City Centre 23 miles

As well as being within a conservation area, there are some trees with protection orders and these would need to be accommodated in the design.
