When it comes to finding a plot in an urban area, sometimes you have to get creative. Infill plots are smaller than average pockets of land, often located in between existing properties. However, the reason many of them haven't been developed before is that they're narrow or awkwardly shaped and have issues with site access that make a build difficult. 

However, they may also represent a good investment for the right house design, and offer a plot in a densely packed urban area where there are no larger sites available for a build.
