I have been quoted a price for a small piece of grass land

Customer Question

I have been quoted a price for a small piece of grass land at the side of my fence,at the first app i was told it was building land and they quoted me £10,000. There is no way that this little piece of grass is building land,its to small and if they built anything it would be to close to my home, can you please tell me if i can appeal against this price and if so whom to contact please.
