Leisure Land

More and more people are turning to land to get away from it all. Owning a piece of countryside for recreation is an appealing proposition in todays suffocating cities.

To enjoy recreational land there may be no need for planning permission which makes the cost of entry to land ownership very low. Agricultural land for sale is often ideal due to the price and the usage covered by the classification of agriculture:

The Town and Country Planning Act 1990 defines agriculture as:-

  • Horticulture, fruit growing, seed growing, dairy farming.
  • The breeding and keeping of livestock, (including any creature kept for the production of food, skins or fur, or for then purpose of its use in farming the land).
  • The use of land as grazing land, meadow land, osier land, market gardens or nursery grounds.
  • The use of land for woodlands where the use is ancillary to the farming of the land for other agricultural purposes.

This covers the majority of usage that people buying land for leisure and recreation.

Pony paddocks may require planning permission should you require stables that provide all weather protection for your horses.

Meadows for sale for grazing animals can be sourced through a number of land agents.
