  1. So we have been looking at another area to build as the one we wanted is on green belt and is going to be more of a headache 🤦‍♀️ We have found a coastal plot with planning permission of either a 3 bedroom bungalow or the choice of a 4 bedroom 1.5 storey house ..and the plot its self with the planning permission is £125000 so on top of that we would have the materials and labour costs to build the 1.5 storey...it is easy hooked up to electric mains and sewage so no need for septic tank installation, does anyone no what kind of quote I would expect from a builder for materials and labour for this as a guide line for how much of a mortgage I would need? Thanks 👍
  2. Nothing there just an empty unused overgrown field which hasn't been touched in 40 years, every other surrounding field is agricultural and regularly used, it just seems just a waste to have a field of overgrown weeds and dumped barbed wire sitting with such plot appeal 😒
  3. So the bit of land we would love to build on is a green belt area...has anyone managed to get planning permission for a new build on a green belt? Or is most of the applications a complete no end of dream situation??? 😤🤯

    Planning permission newbie

    There hasn't been any applications on the land previously the owner of the land his father used to own alot of the land in the surrounding area and from what I no the owner sold his rather large house for alot of money and has moved to another part of Scotland...i think nothing has been done with it previously as the family had more than enough money to fuss about a small patch of land 🤷‍♀️
  5. So me and my husband have found a perfect bit of land as we want to build our own house ...(field behind my parents house) it has been unused since I was born 30 years... no animals on it or farm work it is just over grown and surrounded by farmers growning fields and my parents house. Went through my friend who is a solicitor and she found out who owns it but she said to make sure we can get planning permission before we approach who owns the land to make an offer she also said as the land has been unused and over grown the owner might not even no it belongs to them...I would like to get the land surveyed and valued before approaching the owner..but I thought for planning permission you needed to prove you owned the land first? And of course I don't want to spend loads of money for the owner to turn round and just say it's not for sale!.. Any information on what steps to take or if anyone has been in the same situation would be great..for information purposes I live in Aberdeenshire thanks
