Ongar Civic Amenity Site, Mill Lane, Stock, Ongar, Essex, CM5 9RQ

Guide Price* : £180,000

11.38 acres (4.61 hectares) of yard and grazing land

Upon Instructions of

  • Large site potentially suitable for development (STP)
  • Former Civic Amenity Site with secure yard and grazing/equestrian land
  • 11.38 acres (4.61 hectares)
  • Guide Price of £180,000 reflects attractive pricing of £15,817 per acre


The property comprises a fenced and gated yard area with a large area of grazing land to the rear, and is accessed off Mill Road.

It is understood that the site was previously used for landfill, however we anticipate the site would be suitable for development (subject to planning). The grazing land benefits from a legal right of way over a neighbouring property. There is a small outbuilding erected on the site which we understand was used as a stable.

The area of hardstanding to the front of the site has a certificate of lawfulness for a Civic Amenity Site and accounts for circa 0.5 acres of the site.


The property is accessed off Mill Lane, a quiet lane with some detached housing to the south of High Ongar.

High Ongar is approximately seven miles north of Brentwood and ten miles west of Chelmsford. Therefore we anticipate any residential provision would be attractive to commuters to both these Essex hubs as well as Central London.




The property is within the green belt. However, subject to planning, we anticipate that some limited development may be viable.

Please note that there is 20% overage on the grazing land, with the exception of equestrian development.

Additionally there is 20% overage on the yard area with the exception of a single dwelling and commercial use.

Please see the legal pack for more information.
