It's a joke.
It's high paid so called experts telling them the answers they already know?
They know the system and work daily with each other .
This is what's getting to me... I've been competely transparent about the protected spoecies on site.. I have photographic evidence... I'm happy to provide all the proof the planning dept requires... I just don't have £600 for a pointless scoping survey carried out when everything is hibernating. Dx

It's who you know, not what you know some of the time, unfortunately it applies to all sectors.

However if spending £1/£2k in professional fees and surveys leads to obtaining planning permission for something worth 200k? It makes good business sense in all honesty.
If I had a couple of grand I'd gladly give the job to someone who knows what they are doing...I'm not a developer out to make some money... it's not an investment...I made a stupid mistake and put up a silo without permission... Now with enforcement action pending I've had to make a retrospective application- I borrowed the money for the application fees... Dx

If cash really is as tight as you suggest, then you should either sell it as-is or remortgage it, get the legals sorted and then sell the property with a clean title. This won't be the only time you have an unexpected bill for a few quid (that's the nature of owning land/ property) so get out before it ruins you.
 
No, not unless it had a change of use to a caravan site. Most designated small sites are exempt from planning and therefore the land is still agricultural and therefore is deemed undeveloped.
It has electric hookup points and water at each pitch, also has a designated waste disposal point does that change anything ?

Hypothetically speaking, would it be easier to go from change of use from caravan to housing permission or from undeveloped to housing planning permission.

Im aware that there is a lot of site specific questions around viability this but for now I’m starting with the basics.

TIA

To be honest going to housing when outside of a settlement boundary will be difficult whether it is brownfield or greenfield. Just because the site has been previously developed does not trump the other requirements for houses in the countryside.
The main consideration is is the location sustainable - this basically means can you safely access all day to day services without the use of a private transport?

Basically yes to all of your questions, it’s a strange little site near existing development. So the way forward would be to seek a consultants advise ?

I was under the impression brownfield site it’s far easier to have a permission granted ?

I would certainly advise running it past a planning consultant before making grand plans.

Brownfield is easier than greenfield providing the future use is suitable for the location. Pretty much any other use than residential would be preferred on a rural brownfield site - residential comes very low down the list.
