About the Field to Farm Book

It does seem unlikely in our heavily regulated planning system, that it would be possible to carry out any development on agricultural land without planning permission. However as this book will demonstrate it is possible, to live, build a barn and start a business, all without planning permission, on ordinary agricultural land in the United Kingdom.

For those of you who want to buy a field and turn it into a smallholding without planning permission, this book will show you how. It is a guide that exploits loopholes in the current planning system.

It doesn’t matter who you are, your background or if you already own land and have experience of working on it. This book will allow you to live your dream, living on the land, working with animals, and being part of the agricultural community.

Your opportunity to buy cheap agricultural land and create the smallholding you thought you could never afford!

Using current planning law, not the human rights act as used by other schemes. Whatever your reason for wanting to set up and run your own smallholding, whether it is to be self sufficient or to run a profit making business on your land, this guide covers it all. The animal enterprises are covered from alpaccas to worms and even a touring caravan site. The book takes you through all the steps starting with a field and up to getting planning permission for a house. It tells you everything that you need to know so it is possible to turn a relatively modest investment in agricultural land into a substantial asset.
