Affordable - what does that mean? I can't, you maybe can. What is certain, though, is that land in your immediate area will cost more as a proportion of your total build price. A quick glance at SPONS will show you also that build costs around your area are more expensive than those inside the M25.

You need @nod on the job. He's brilliant at nosing out sites and buying them at the right price. @Ferdinand's yer man for setting you straight in relation to planning once you've found somewhere. 


Many here have found the search for a sensibly priced and convenient  site needs a good dose of persistence. Plenty of time to absorb the collective wisdom on BuildHub then......

Welcome. Take time to read through all the older posts.  You’ll learn so much.  And if you have specific questions not already answered someone here will know the answer or have a good stab at it.  If you ask for opinions you’ll get differing ones though !
