Land For Sale With Planning Permission – Comment

There are pros and cons to searching for Land For Sale With Planning Permission.  Here we are going to look at the key points.

Land for Sale with Planning Permission is usually a result of the land owner seeking financial uplift by obtaining planning approval. However, obtaining planning approval is not a difficult task and you should not be held to ransom, just because the land owner has paid someone to get planning permission.

You need to be wary of plots with planning permission where it’s expiry date is close. You need to make yourself aware of the length of time left on any consent as many vendors don’t often sell their plot until some time after the original consent was granted. If preparatory work or investigations are needed in order to begin this process, you may find you do not have enough time and have to reapply. Keeping a consent current is the top priority of any plot owner. If in doubt, always purchase subject to the granting or re-granting of planning permission.

Detailed development plans will have been submitted to the local planning authority and it is therefore important to ensure that the actual permissions granted meets your requirements.

Planning permission expires after three years. You should satisfy yourself that there are not any significant time restrictions attached to existing permissions.

Plots are also sold with outline planning permission. Outline planning permission is often cheaper to obtain and it will also offer an indication of the type of full planning permission that should be achievable in the future.

  • You have less risk because you do not need to try and get planning permission.
