Full description

The Rural & Farming Department at Henry Adams has been instructed to market this parcel of land, positioned in a central village location in the South Downs.

The field is approximately 0.48 acres in size, on free-draining and south-facing chalk soils, ideally suited for seasonal grazing or smallholding activities.

This field was briefly considered for development by the South Downs National Park Authority as part of the Strategic Homes Land Availability Allowance in 2016. It was later excluded because the exercise sought to find locations where five or more houses could be built, and they determined the site as too small for 5 homes. No planning permissions have been sought under the current Local Plan, although a unsuccessful attempt was made 14 years ago.

The vendor is seeking to dispose of the land as an unconditional sale, free from restriction or overage, and therefore a purchaser is free to explore development opportunities at their will. This is a rare and unique opportunity.

Interested parties access the land entirely at their own risk and may view the paddock unaccompanied, on foot only, without animals, and during daylight hours only whilst the property is being marketed for sale.

We are now inviting Best and Final offers to be received by 2pm on Friday 13th November 2020.


A rare and unique opportunity to acquire a field or paddock, positioned in a charming central village location.


Why live in Chichester?

We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.

In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.

Our city centre is a shopper’s paradise and there are great places to eat and drink, from elegant restaurants to cosy cafés and pubs, all set along the city’s four main streets. Chichester Cathedral on West Street dominates the skyline and, on summer afternoons, its grounds are filled with local people enjoying picnics. In the evenings, the Cathedral plays a central part in the city’s nightlife by hosting classical music events.

Chichester has a number of public parks, the Chichester Tennis and Racquets Fitness Club and Westgate Leisure Centre, where you’ll find a large swimming pool and skate park and, if sailing is your thing, Chichester Harbour is a haven for you. There really is so much to do here you’ll be spoilt for choice; spend the day on one of the many local beaches, stretch your legs on the stunning South Downs or catch a show at the Festival Theatre before it moves to a permanent home in London’s West End.

If you’d like to buy, sell or let a property in Chichester, get in touch with your local team and discover the Henry Adams difference for yourself.
