Could this patch of land on the edge of a housing estate make the perfect site for Larry Nixon’s new family home? Mike Dade investigates

PLOT WATCH: Mike Dade investigates

WHO Larry Nixon

WHAT An undeveloped plot on a residential estate


Larry Nixon had been looking for a plot for a few months when a friend of his pointed out a piece of unused land on a town-edge housing estate. Having taken a look at it, Larry thinks it would be ideal for the type of traditional, four-bedroom family abode that he’d like to build. Could this site offer the potential he’s looking for? The plot is mainly rough grass, about 35m deep by 20m wide, with a very slight slope down from back to front. An access road to the car park – and the car park itself – are on the west side, with detached houses on the east. At the rear is a school playing fi eld, with trees running along the site boundary. Towards the frontage is a single poplar tree, but otherwise the land appears free from any obstacles to building. It’s clear that a detached home would sit comfortably here, with an open southerly aspect to the front of the site.
