Building Plot for sale

UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE AFFORDABLE BUILDING PLOT AT ULVA FERRY

Would you like to build your own home in the Ulva Ferry area?  The local community are looking to make the area more sustainable by attracting young families to live, work and to support the school in this beautiful part of the island, through building affordable rental housing – and now releasing a plot of land for sale.

The Ulva Ferry Housing Partnership (comprising representatives of both USCA and MICT) currently have a 0.25 acre plot at Acharonich for sale for just £40,000 – substantially below market value.  The plot, which has full planning permission for a three-bedroom house, is situated within the Loch na Keal National Scenic Area and offers exceptional uninterrupted views.

The plot was gifted by a local landowner and all proceeds from the sale will contribute directly to the construction costs of the new affordable rental homes being built next to Ulva Primary School.  To ensure no unfair advantage is taken of the landowner’s generosity, it is being sold with a Rural Housing Burden attached to the Title, which means the community will retain a percentage share of the future value of the property, and ensures the house will remain affordable if it is sold on in the future.

If you are interested in buying this plot, we would love to hear from you.  Applications are welcomed from those with a connection to the area, particularly young couples and families, who are committed to being part of the community at Ulva Ferry.

For further details and an application pack, please contact Helen MacDonald on 01680 812 900 or email hmacdonald@mict.co.uk.
