    The point is, the Dale Farm travellers started out with a scrap yard and permission, then spread out without permission. The resulting site was four times bigger than the original scrap yard land.
    I doubt travellers would worry about suck details.....

    Are you wanting to buy a smallholding with residential permission or registered and already operating as a smallholding? Or are you just wanting to buy a small holding size bit of land? Any particular plot/size limit - minimum or maximum size.
    even a gypsy caravan is too much settling down.

    Thank you. I'll give copy and pasting a try next time.
    I'm a bit old fashioned... Still in the 20th century. I used a bit of paper and a pen for the item number. It's only now I'm off grid that I have a telephone that's not attached to the wall by a wire. :-)

    Look at their feedback as a seller - it's awful. Buyer beware.

    Well, that's always true... But when it's land, and there are solicitors involved, he's going to be hard pushed to pull a fast one...

    Rocking horse shit comes to mind. We have had quite a surge on investors buying up small parcels of land over the last ten years. These investors were hoping that by some mirricle, they could apply for and get, (to some extent) full planning permission for residential development. Realising that Local Authorities and Central Government weren't going to relax the planning laws anytime soon. Now these investors are putting the land back on the market and taking a small but better than average profit on the land bought. In those ten years many have tried to site caravans, complete with paying or working tenants, only to find it went against them and subsequent planning applications.

    Theres every chance you could find a small parcel or plot to rent. But little chance of actually managing to remain there as a resident. Too many NIMBY's that are annoyed with development sharks and land prospectors, who have been snatching up land and hoping development concent would railroad any local objection to proposed development.

    I'm noticing the same plots (local) around me, going back on the market within 12 months. Some folk just aren't doing their homework and only seeing investment opportunities without research. Often a chat with the local planning department would inform the potential purchasers, that several previous owners have made enquiries into the possibility of developing these parcels of land and when they have been told development approval is very unlikely. They put the land back on the market and it all goes around again. A seller isn't likely to broadcast and negative information like local objections or Planning enquiries. Fools rush in and all that.
