Where did the sum of £19,000.00 come from for the sale of Chilcombe Field?

£3000.00 per plot and £1000.00 for legal fees. The usual land value for an ‘exception site’ (where affordable homes can be built to meet a local need) is an uplift from agricultural value but is nowhere near the full residential value of a comparable site where a developer would be able to achieve planning. (Something that would not be possible on this site due to the Planning Policy restrictions of the rural AONB.) 

The £3,000 per plot value was also considered appropriate by Northleigh Parish Council in order to assist the Community Land Trust in its case for the homes and, if the project succeeded, would result in a future investment to the community from the payment of an ongoing ground rent.
