Some homeowners are sitting on a small fortune in the shape of a potential building plot (or even plots) in their gardens, often without realising it. And sometimes the ‘small fortune’ can be a life changing amount of money.
Not everyone would want to build in their garden of course and there are sometimes neighbours to consider. However, often the garden land is not really needed any longer, maybe even a burden. Getting planning permission is a ‘win win’ outcome for both the original householder and the owners of a new home.
