Hi all
As the title suggests this is a long shot but ....... I’m looking for a sliver of land to buy or very very long term lease on which to site a shipping container conversion home, and subsequently create a small holding. Obviously I understand that not many people like the idea of others using/living on ther land, but with all these covid restrictions not going anywhere anytime soon. I was thinking someone may need an extra income to help out. I’m not going to bang on with my back story like something off a crap reality tv show, but basically I split with my wife, had to move back in with parents, stress went through the roof and I ended up converting a 20 foot container at work and that’s where I’m at. Not where I want to be geographically or physically at 45.
So if yourself or if you know of someone please let me know. I’m based in Blackburn, Lancashire. But would consider most things upto maybe 40 mins travel from there. Drop me an email if you think you can help me out. Cheers folks

Sorry to say, but basically you’ve got no chance of getting planning consent for that or similar, because if a piece of land can get pp it will be used to build a conventional house which will be worth far more.

Any possible site, barn, broken down cottage etc in the green belt or rural will be £££££££££

Just tell them Kevin MacLeod or George what's his name are going to do a program about it
Then you can get away with all sorts
Best of luck
The shipping container design has already been done on Grand Designs. If memory serves me right it was built in Ireland by the son of an Irish farmer. In fact the Dwain from the programme looks similar to the one here 😉

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

The Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO) has issued new advice to help growers understand the importance of measuring pest populations before any decisions are made on insecticides. Charlotte Cunningham reports. Ahead of the trapping season, the PGRO has produced a new masterclass video to help growers understand how to trap and assess pest populations. The key advice is that using a range of preventative tools will be crucial for farmers looking to reduce cases of pea and bean weevil, pea moth, and silver Y moth this spring, while finding more sustainable ways of farming in line with new agricultural policy, according to the PGRO’s research and...
