Eco town land on mar­ket for £ 4.65m

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A mam­moth 555 acres of prime agri­cul­tural and devel­op­ment land at Oulton in West York­shire is on the mar­ket.

The land was pre­vi­ously pro­posed as an eco town and is part of the Oulton Hall Es­tate, close to Junc­tion 30 of the M62.

It is for sale as a whole or in a num­ber of dif­fer­ent lots with an over­all guide price of £ 4.65 m.

The eco-town had been planned by Oulton Hall (Isle of Man) Ltd, who wanted to build 9,000 car­bon neu­tral homes, to­gether with six new pri­mary schools, a sec­ondary school, an ur­ban farm, a ceme­tery and a new dual car­riage­way.

Jonathan Hyland, a part­ner with Knight Frank in Leeds, says: “That plan has bit­ten the dust and the land is now back on the mar­ket and pro­vid­ing a rare op­por­tu­nity to buy a di­verse port­fo­lio of prime free­hold and agri­cul­tural land.

“The Oulton Hall Es­tate is blessed with an amaz­ing lo­ca­tion, south-east of Leeds, close to Wake­field and the M1 and next to Junc­tion 30 of the M62. The es­tate is suit­able for res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and leisure use, sub­ject to plan­ning and there has al­ready been ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est.” Visit www.north­ern.knight­
