Location & Description
This fine site enjoys a convenient position on the outskirts of Upper Welland just over three miles south of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The towns of Ledbury and Upton upon Severn are each about five miles away and offer a further range of facilities. Transport communications are excellent. Junction 1 of the M50 motorway at Upton is about eight miles away and there is a mainline railway station in Great Malvern.
Upper Welland falls within the catchment area of some of the best education in the region including The Wyche and Wells Primary Schools, The Chase Secondary School and in the private sector Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls School. The Worcestershire Golf Club is only just over a mile distant.
The site currently comprises land to the east of 101 Upper Welland Road from which direct vehicular access will be gained. It has a lovely south facing aspect across countryside with a particularly striking view of the Malvern Hills. Historically the ground has only ever been in use as grazing land and pasture with fenced and hedged boundaries.
Full planning consent was granted by Malvern Hills District Council on 14th October 2016 (Application No. 16/00123/FUL) for the construction of a four bedroomed detached dormer bungalow (approx. 2600 sq ft). It has a grid reference Easting 377689 Northing 241145. A copy of this planning consent can be seen on Malvern Hills District Council's planning website or at the selling agent's offices. However it should be noted by potential buyers that the owners of this site are retaining a strip of land along its northern edge which includes a stone outbuilding and timber workshop, both of which were included within the above consent. This effectively means that the current planning permission is compromised and any purchaser making an offer will potentially need to resubmit a fresh application to accommodate this material alteration.
Plans and Drawings
Plans and drawings showing floor layouts and elevations are also available on Malvern Hills District Council's planning portal and with the selling agent. However, more detailed information can be obtained from the architect who submitted this application and designed the property

The site is part of ground lying to the east of 101 Upper Welland Road with direct frontage onto Upper Welland Road itself. It measures approximately 25.6 metres (84 feet) along its frontage and about 50.29 metres (165 feet) in depth. A strip of ground (together with a small stone outbuilding and timber workshop) running along the rear (northern) boundary which was included in the original planning consent is being retained by the vendor. The new boundaries have now been marked out by the vendor and are indicated by post and rail fencing.
A condition of the original planning consent dictates that a new access into the site has to be created. It should be noted that the owners of the neighbouring property 101 Upper Welland Road will be reserving a right of vehicular and pedestrian passage across the first few feet of this new access where it links to their existing driveway.
The site will be offered with freehold tenure and full vacant possession.
The site is easily visible from its Upper Welland Road frontage so potential buyers can carry out a site inspection.
