Auction Property

Residential Development Site at Rookery Park, Beccles Road, Carlton Colville, Lowestoft, Suffolk, NR33 8HJ

Sale Postponed


An unusual opportunity to acquire a group of traditional unconverted barns with the benefit of planning consent for conversion to six dwellings. The property here comprises a group of buildings constructed of brick with pitched main roofs in very poor order and located at the entrance to Rookery Park Golf Club in Carlton Colville. An area of land including a range of buildings dating back to the 1950's is included in the sale.

Planning Matters:

Planning permission was granted by Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Council on 8th March 2017 for conversion of the buildings here into six dwellings. Details of the consent are available on the Council's website under reference no. DC/17/0915/FUL. The agents have a knowledge of the consent and are able to talk to prospective purchasers about the background to everything. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an interesting development site in a delightful location.


As stated, the barns are situated at the entrance to Rookery Park Golf Club and will be clearly seen when buyers wish to inspect. They offer an excellent opportunity for the discerning purchaser to create an interesting development of homes, strategically placed between Lowestoft and Beccles, within easy reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and within striking distance of Ipswich and Norwich.


From Norwich proceed south on the A146 Beccles Road and continue to the Gillingham roundabout. Proceed towards Lowestoft on the Beccles bypass passing straight over the next two roundabouts and the entrance to Rookery Park Golf Club will be seen on the left hand side just before entering Carlton Colville, about 5 miles from Lowestoft.


Mains water and electricity available. No mains drainage. The mains gas supply bisects this site: further information from Transco regarding site number 4438 - tel. 0800 111999.


Strictly by prior appointment with the auctioneers.
