Hi Xog,

how is your neighbor who land grabbed the patch at the bottom of the garden ?

What's the latest ?

Eh? That was years ago. I got onto the council and had the bloke's claim turned down. Not too hard, given his rambling, irrelevant and often self-contradictory letters. The owners threated him with costly legal case anyway and he moved out.

Why you asking Beans? Have you got similar problems?

PS You'll be asking about Trinity next. (or was that Dim? I know one of you two was trying to get er)

thanks Xog, no, no such problems here, two building plots came up for sale next to my house this year and I bought them so that on that side there'll never be a bigger idiot than me, my neighbor on the other side said, no, it's so that I won't have a bigger idiot on the right side than I have on the left side :-)

all the best

Milan.

Milan has been stuck in a timewarp ever since everything became virtualised and he doesn't have to back up the servers to tapes each night.

Milan.If you build a house on one of the plots and knock your house down you can ensure an exclusion zone on BOTH sides.

yes you're right

each of the three plots are about .4acre and they are all clear building plots, obviously mine already has a house, chateau benes, but I got the other two for a fantastic price and have many options available

anyway, for now the two new pieces will provide a beautiful garden and we'll see what I do in the future, so many options including

putting a couple of bungalows on there for mine and mrs's parents in old age and then later either renting the bungalows or using them for my daughters' first homes etc

many possibilities, the nicest thing is I got the two plots, and the price I paid is the cherry on the top

for now I am preparing a vegetable patch on there and will simply keep the grass cut and enjoy the peace of it all

Two words of advice. Just Don't!!

we'll see, I'd rather have them local and buy in care, than in a care home

You're lucky. My garden's on wrong side of a hill, so dark in winter. I've been searching for almost a year for some land, not for development/as investment but a nice bit with some woods & clearing to lounge around on.

Almost nothing ever comes up round here and few I have looked at have been spoiled by something, ridiculous price, (one is £40k for 1.2 acres!) too far away, right by a main road, footpath through the middle etc.

footpath through the middle etc.

There might be fat bottomed lady ramblers to observe though? You could build a hide and be naked in there.....

I'm surprised there isn't a clause saying you MUST built housing on them to help with the 'housing crisis'.

Don't remind me. I put in some plans a few years back to sell off a part of my garden. All agencies were in agreement that it could go ahead....except for the Heritage Officer who, despite never having even visited the property, decided that it would "spoil the setting of the listed building", and vetoed the whole affair.
Fooking :winker:
