4 Introduction The land occupies a prominent position to the North of Shoreham-by-sea and the A27 Shoreham flyover with the A283 and with road frontage and access from the Steyning Road and also falling within the South Downs National Park. The land enjoys an attractive backdrop to the South Downs with Lot 2 forming part of the lower slope of the Downs and with areas of attractive permanent pasture to the edge of the brookland drains to Lot 1 & 3. Lot 1 has formed the base of a successful car boot sale site run for the last 16 years creating a favourable turnover during the course of the year run under the 28 day permitted planning rule which provides for up to 14 days in year for holding a market (to encompass car boots). The car boot sale seasons runs from May with a sale every Sunday throughout the summer (weather permitting) from 7am start for sellers and 8am for the general public. Car sellers are currently charged at 10 and an extra 2 with trailers, vans from 12 and general public parking at 1. There is felt to be good potential for further growth from the prominent position with separate gated access into Lot 1 and separate gated access leading to a track to Lot 2. Lot 3 may be accessed by a separate gate along a section of track also leading to Erringham Farm (private). The land forming part of Lot 2 has formerly been in arable cultivation and written confirmation was received from Natural England on 20 th February 2012 giving consent for the potential recultivation of the land and with such consent being valid for 3 years and thereafter subject to re-application. This Lot 2 could potentially be available to buy in two parts as shown by the line on the plan and with the Northern section to include ownership of the entrance track, subject to shared maintenance there over between the two parts. If this Lot 2 were sold in two parts, the Vendors would erect the dividing stock fencing (A-B-C on the plan). Situation Shoreham-by-sea to the South is within approx. 1 mile and has a good range of local shops trades and facilities as well as mainline station, harbour and airport. The land is also very conveniently placed for access to the A27 providing a good transport route to a substantial catchment area in the seaside city of Brighton, approx. 8 miles (seafront) and the large coastal town of Worthing, approx. 6 miles to the West. Further to the North the old market town of Steyning is approx. 5 miles and offers an extensive range of local shops, trades and facilities. The soils to the land comprise a mixture of alluvial deposits over upper and middle chalk to the lower lying brookland meadows and chalky loam head deposits over chalk to the gently sloping and well drained land to Lot 2 at the edge of the Downs. Single Farm Payments entitlements are available to be sold with the land where required.
