A) Just because you/ your family own some land does not mean that that makes it suitable to build on. Perhaps you are a victim of govt double-speak about people having the right to live where they grew up, just because they gew up there. But if that were the case, and if my folks lived on Ailsbury Rd - which they dont - would that gaurantee me the automatic right/ pp to fill in the garden with a one-off bungalow? Me dont think so!
B) I think TP is offering you sound advice; in any case why would you want the headaches of building 2 abodes instead of one - unless it is a plan motivated by profit.
C) I am normally not hostile to anyone on this - check out my posts - but this week far too many new people have been posting one-off threads about one-off houses, when the matter has been done to death on this site, if they had just looked first. And while "every case is different', there not really, and especially as the new OPs arent even bothered to put up details, maps, etc and instead just ask vague questions about specific cases.
Excuse me, but *yawn*
