I was watching Grand Designs last night and they never really talk about the land or the planning permission process. It starts after that. But I'm sure its a massive consideration. How do you suppose they get the land, it can't be land already with detailed planning permission because usually the grand designs aren't very normal so wouldn't fit in. What sort of land do you think people usually buy for home building. I know the gov is trying to free up land, does that mean its easier to get permission to convert field to housing land? Just wondering if anyone has experience of buying land with the aim to building a house and what the process is like.
