Freehold Residential Development Opportunity

Land to the North West of High Green, Catterick Village, North Yorkshire, DL10 7LN


  • Freehold Residential Development site offering a unique opportunity to deliver a high quality, select development
  • Outline planning consent for up to 9 units
  • Sought after village location


Site Overview

The site is located to the north west of Manor House, Low Green, accessed where the Low Green road meets High Green, approximately 650 meters from the centre of Catterick and overlooking open fields, a lake and dispersed woodland.

The site benefits from an Outline planning consent for the erection of 9 residential dwellings (TP ref: 16/00315/OUT).

The site slopes gently from north to south and is currently laid to grass, used for grazing. Existing residential buildings lie to the south in the form of a recently developed farmstead. Further residential dwellings lie to the east of the site. The northern and western boundaries extend onto the owners retained land and are currently open fields, laid to grass and a lake further west providing a very attractive outlook. A public bridleway crosses the site southeast to the northwest. The owner requires that the access and the existing bridleway is retained and incorporated into any future development.

Catterick Village offers convenient access to the A1 motorway network, benefitting from the recently opened Junction 52 to the north west of the village. The opening of the new junction will significantly reduce passing traffic through the village to its benefit. The village offers a range of convenience services and shops, sports facilities and Michael Syddall Church of England Aided Primary School (rated ‘Good’ in their latest OFSTED Report), and a bus service to nearby Richmond (6km), Darlington (20km) and Northallerton (10km).


Town Planning

The land edged red on the Site Plan (available in the ‘Documents and Downloads’ section of this website) measures approximately 0.53 hectares (1.3 acres) and benefits from Outline Planning permission for 9 dwellings with access from High Green. The outline planning consents provides for three of the units to be provided as affordable housing, discounted by a minimum of 20% of Open Market Value in perpetuity (Richmondshire District Council have suggested a cap on capital values of £175,000). There is also the requirement for an offsite affordable housing contribution of £35,400.

No developer contribution is required for Educational facilities in Catterick Village however, a contribution of £9,614 is required for offsite improvements to local recreational facilities. The Section 106 Agreement is available to download in the ‘Downloads and Documents’ section.

The site abuts Catterick Village’s Conservation Area, the boundary of which runs along the lands southern boundary.

Richmondshire District Council are yet to adopt their Community Infrastructure Levy and as such, the site will not attract any CIL charges.

A suite of technical information and copies of planning documents can be found in the ‘Downloads and Documents’ section of this website.


Sales Process

The freehold is for sale via Private Treaty. Offers are sought on either conditional or unconditional of planning. All offers are to be made in writing, addressed to Matthew Bagley at Titchmarsh & Bagley, and received at the agents Leeds office.

Please note the vendor also owns land that abuts the northern boundary of the consented site equating to 0.45 hectares (1.1 acres) shown edged blue on the Additional Land Plan (available in the ‘Downloads and Documents’ section of the website). Although the land does not benefit from planning permission, we believe this offers strong planning potential for residential development. As such, the vendor is willing to consider proposals on this parcel of land also conditional on securing planning permission, by way of a conditional contract or Option Agreement.



The site can be viewed from the highway and public bridleway that crosses the site. Please note interested parties enter the site at their own risk.
