I'm almost complete with a container home project in Brazil (my wife is Brazilian) and we're looking to try to build a similar home in the UK. I would be keen to hear from anyone who's doing or done the same thing, and how they tackled planning permissions and other legalities. We're only at the very start in terms of dreaming up the project, but are wondering about the possibilities of buying grazing land, or a small disused car park and then looking to change the usage to allow building. Or, building in such a way to avoid the necessity of certain permissions - if that's possible. Are there any loopholes we can use here, in terms of buildings under a certain height/width/height from the ground etc? If anyone has any experience would be great to hear.
Thanks in advance,
