The Land Known as Harty Fields, Church Road, Oare, Faversham
The land comprises Land Registry Title No. K727748 and extends to approximately 10.60 acres of pasture with road frontage and adjoins the Kent Wildlife Trust Oare Reserve on the northern side.
The land is classified Grade III on the Agricultural Land Classification Map for England & Wales and is relatively level. There are three fenced enclosures, and a small flight pond. There is an agricultural building close to the southern boundary and the land is occupied under Licence by a local farmer.
The land is let to a local farmer under the terms of a Grazing Licence dated 1st April 2020. The Agreement ends on the 25th March 2021 and the sale will be subject to this agreement. The annual payment is £550, and the Landlord has reserved sporting rights. The land is grazed by cattle and some fields are cut for hay.
The land is located within a site of Special Scientific Interest and is considered a priority habitat for a variety of bird species. The vendors have entered the land into a Mid Tier Countryside Stewardship Scheme, which expires 31st December 2022. This is the GS2 option “Permanent Grassland with very low inputs”. The new owner will be obligated to continue with this arrangement.
The land is also registered for Basic Payment Entitlements and the vendors have made the claim for 2020 and this, together with the Countryside Stewardship Claim monies, will be retained by the sellers. It is considered that the land could be suitable for offsetting bio-diversity losses, which will be a requirement of The Environment Bill.
