Taggart markets prime Cumbrian residential sites
Taggart Holdings is selling two sites totalling more than 13 acres, with consent for residential development, in Carlisle and Harrington, Cumbria.
The Northern Ireland-based developer has retained the Manchester and Newcastle upon Tyne offices of Knight Frank to handle the sale of land at St Ninians Road, Carlisle, and Bellaport Gardens, Harrington.
A brownfield site of 7.75 acres in St Ninians Road, Carlisle, has full planning consent – subject to a 106 agreement – for 132 homes, consisting of 75% houses and 25% apartments. The scheme includes 20 affordable homes.
The Bellaport Gardens site at Harrington comprises of brownfield land and allotments and covers six acres. It has detailed planning permission for 63 homes ranging from houses, detached and mews, to apartments with sea views.
Harrington is on the west coast of Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District National Park, near Workington to the North and Whitehaven and Sellafield to the South.
The town and surrounding area also faces a strong economic future as work starts on a £500m scheme to transform the harbour, which dates from 1760, into a marina and homes.
David Clifton, senior surveyor, Knight Frank who is handling the sale of the sites for the residential development team at Knight Frank Manchester, said: "These prime Cumbrian sites represent an outstanding and rare opportunity for developers to build a wide range of homes in truly outstanding locations."
