My dream since watching Grizzly Adams as a child has been to build a log house to live in (albeit 2 stories and 3 bedrooms), but I’m unsure as to how to get the right land. I live in Kent and there are many farms selling land around the area where I live.
With the new rules the government are talking about is it going to make it easier for me to buy a piece of pasture land of about 3 to 4 acres with a small amount of woodland and about 0.5 acres of meadow?
Later my plan is to dig a small lake, stock it with fish and allow people to fish on a day ticket, this would cover my retirement too.
Are my plans too ambitious or would I stand a chance of getting permission for them?
The house would also be eco-friendly using as much solar and wind energy as possible and use a ‘fosse septique’ for sewage.
