ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO BUY OR SELL ON THE ESTATE
The Webb Estate has many attractions. It is a tranquil environment, and the layout of the properties provides a high level of privacy and seclusion. It is also stable. There are covenants that restrict development, and the designation of the estate as a Conservation Area provides a high threshold for planning consent. The construction of multi occupation dwellings, and extensions close to the boundaries or the roads is not permitted. The roads are unadopted and are maintained by the residents who pay an annual levy to their Road Association, which organises repairs and periodic resurfacing, as well as routine cleaning.
In 1999 ownership of the roads and verges on the Estate (and the benefit of restrictive covenants) were acquired from the Webb Family by Webb Estate Limited (WEL) a private company owned by around 90% of the residents. All new residents are able to purchase shares in WEL & when buying a house on the Estate it is important to ensure that any existing shares are transferred to the new owner at point of sale. Full information regarding this is given below.
