As per the title.
I recently put in an offer on a half acre plot of land with outline planning permission but my cash offer was turned down. TBH the seller is taking the piss as land is leveraged so the fact they seem to think it is worth the same as it was 3/4 years ago is laughable. (You cannot build more land but it doesn't mean it keeps a constant value!). It would have been a costly site to get out of the ground as it was on a hill but I want a split level house so in my eyes it would have been ideal.
I have found a far larger plot, circa 6 acres (2 acres of 'forest') and with a canal frontage on one aspect (albeit a railway along another!), it is without planning permission and only about 2 miles from the previous one, sadly it is a boring flat site. It is also a LOT cheaper (over a 5th of the price).
Currently there is only 1 point of access which is just over a cars width and as walkers have right of way around the perimeter (going back to the canal frontage) I could see this causing problems although as the land is only £100k I am happy to take a punt, (hence I have placed an offer) and sit on it for years (or buy an adjacent property - problem is that maybe 3 at tops would allow direct access due to the way the 'forest' lies and none of them are for sale). The current access road is unused and almost overgrown.
Does anyone on here know any smart arse ways around planning? I know you can build something of 'architectural importance' that makes it a lot easier and I know of the one about building a modern age 'manor house' but do any of you know of other means of obtaining planning- bar living on site for 10 years. lmao
