Against Moreton Road is a large area of concrete hardstanding, associated with previous agricultural uses, together with ‘Goose Green’, a grassed area that sits adjacent to Moreton Road. It is intended that Goose Green shall be retained to ensure that the open feel of the Property’s frontage is maintained.

The Property is irregular in shape and the boundaries are defined as follows:
