Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The site is located on the edge of Helston town centre adjacent to the Tesco Superstore and immediately behind the Toyota Garage on Clodgey Lane. Helston is world renowned for its annual Flora Day and the town is approximately 9 miles south west of Falmouth and 12 miles east of Penzance. The town is located on the A394 which joins the A39 at Penryn and has good access to the A30 at Pool approximately 11 miles to the north, Newquay Airport is 35 miles to the north east. The town has a population of 11,700 but is increased by the presence of a large military airbase at RNAS Culdrose with a workforce in excess of 3,000 the population is also boosted in the summer months by an influx of tourists.

The Site

This is a well located parcel of land accessed from the A394 and located at its junction with the B3297 on the edge of Helston town centre. The land extends to circa 1.0 ha (2.4 acres) and benefits from planning consent for the erection of 2 detached dwellings. Previously outline planning consent was granted for 46 dwellings on the site but this has now expired. The site is currently laid to grass with an access along the side of the Toyota Garage which is immediately in front of the land.


We hold copies of a Flood Risk Assessment and Ground Contamination Reports for the site which can be made available to prospective purchasers on request.


The site benefits from the grant of conditional planning consent (Ref:PA14/01569) for the construction of two detached dwellings using the existing access from Clodgey Lane. Previously the site was granted outline planning consent for the erection of 46 dwellings under reference W2/PA10/00024/O with access across two neighbouring sites but this has now expired. We are of the opinion that a purchaser is likely to obtain consent for a development of 40 plus units subject to acquiring a suitable access.


We have agreed terms in principle with two neighbouring owners to gain access to the A394 as proposed in the approved drawings submitted as part of the outline consent for 46 dwellings. Further details are available on request.


The site is affected by a restrictive covenant and our clients have obtained Counsels advice in respect of lifting the covenant, again further details are available on request.

Method Of Sale

The site is offered for sale by way of Private Treaty on an Unconditional basis.

Guide Price

We are instructed to seek offers in the region of £500,000 for the site with the purchaser being responsible for the costs of acquiring a suitable access and lifting the restrictive covenant.
