Proposals and offers are invited to bid for the opportunity to acquire an option agreement on this land of approx.16.6 (sixteen point six) acres, set at the edge of the village of Sparkford, Somerset. Location Sparkford is a small village located with very straightforward access to the A303, ideal for people commuting to the local towns of Yeovil and Sherborne and further afield as far as Bristol, Bath, Salisbury and Exeter.

Bidders are asked to include within their proposal their plans for the remaining undeveloped land, such as amenities or landscaping that will benefit the site and the local community. This undevelopable section of the land is an opportunity to enhance the development in the eyes of the council by providing features that are beneficial to the village and residents, enabling the council to endorse the scheme and prioritise it above other developments in the area. The presence of the stream presents a real opportunity to create something new and special for the community which could differentiate a proposal when presented to the planning authority Method of Sale The site is offered for sale by way of informal, non-binding tender with the vendor reserving the right not to accept the highest or any offer and also reserving the right to withdraw the site from sale or to vary the method of sale at any time without notice.
