A FORMER railway station site in a small village on the Blackdown Hills is up for sale - and it comes with “detailed planning consent.”

A 1.3 acre site in Hemyock, which until the 1990s served as the village’s railway station, is now in the market for developers to take it over and build 11 homes on the land.

The sale is being managed by Greenslade Taylor Hunt. The estate agents are advertising the site for offers in the region of £750,000.

The agent said: “The proposed development comprises eight open market homes and three affordable properties. The make-up of the affordable properties can either be affordable rent, starter homes, discounted market sale housing or shared ownership or such other tenure as approved by Mid Devon District Council.

“The site is on the market at a guide price of offers in the region of £750,000. Submission of offers must be received by 12pm on Friday, June 14.”
