"A Pre-App has taken place to investigate the possibility of residential development for up to three apartments and although no application has been made, this remains a medium to long term possibility.

"The busy road side location also lends itself to a variety of commercial possibilities for short or long term income."

The land is being marketed with offers in excess of £75,000.
