    What would stop planning??

    Hi guys thanks for taking time to read this. Long story made short, I have taken posession of old agricultural land ie adverse possessor all my homework led to previous owner died with no next of kin 60 years ago unregistered. I have come across some angry neighbours asking my business ect ect and I have asked them are you the owner and if your not please don't cause me hassle. They have all said to me ohh you won't get planning there you know as it's a brownfield site..and another lady today said the same..the 2 fields I have occupied are empty and full of bracken that I am in the middle of clearing and turning back to decent grazing land..the land had a road to the rear with houses to the left and right of each boundary end and below the patch I possess baisicly houses all around the land I possess.my question is what would stop me getting planning for a house in the future if I did decide to go for it??and how would they know that?Regards

    You can take a plan of the land to the local authority and enquire how it is zoned. If you are lucky your local authority may have the information online.

      Brown field suggests contaminated to me, In which case you could poison anything that grazes on it.

        Thanks for your reply guys very appreciated,the thing is one old man said brown field site, I have no idea in this area of what that was untill it has been explained by leaseholder64!! As far as I know through local knowledge it's virgin land never been developed or had a building as simple as a cowshed on it..it's been used for grazing/owner died and left all these years 60 or so...is this a old wife's tale to scare me off you think?As I can't understand what issues would or could stop planning for residential building of any sort?other houses use the same B road to access their properties sorry to go on hear guys but can you give me an example of the clauses or any other things that can effect the application..by the way it's not SSSI land or protected in any way

          Is your adverse possession registered with Land registry & are you now thus the owner?

          It is of course possible he's trying to put you off.....
          I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            I can't understand what issues would or could stop planning for residential building of any sort?
            Your Local Planning Authority will have a Local Plan that can be viewed on-line that sets out the policies that will be considered if a planning application is made.
            Often there are maps of each village or town showing where land is acceptable for development purposes.

            In my area each map shows the settlement envelope and a thick black line is drawn to show that within the identified settlement envelopes certain types of development are encouraged.

            If the land you are referring to is agricultural land outside a defined settlement envelope the chances of building houses are not very good, whoever owns the land in question.

            You should read as much of the Local Plan as possible to try and understand the answer to your own question.
