Thank you for your advice.
The land is currenlty registered.
Are you aware of how we can find out who owns ponds?
With regard to the planning application, are you aware of any sucessful planning applications with circumstances such as ours? Further, once we have the animals, we will need to stay at the land overnight because we will need to be able to tend to them and protect them from vandals (due to their being a rise in vandalism in the area recently).
I note that the allotment act 1980 allows for a dwelling on an allotment of not less than 1 acre. Would this suggestion that dwellings are permitted but only in circumstances whereby the allotment land is large enough, assist in our application. Our land is just over half an acre and is compltely separate piece of land with road access.
If we were to move onto the land without planning, what would be the procedure for Council to take legal action. How long would this take?
Are you aware of the rules regarding temporary accomodation? If we were to live elsewhere for 28 days of the year, would this be classed as temporary accomodation and not a change of use of the land?
Sorry for the bombardment, but this appears to be somewhat of a grey area.
