Hi, I am looking for some help and advice. I am currently going through the planning process of building an off grid cabin on my land. I have a large garden which scales onto a hill and it surrounded by a 4 foot tall hedge, all of which I own. My plan is to build the off grid cabin on flat ground underneath the hill; it is set back away from all the houses in the surrounding area and hidden behind my hedge. On approaching the planning commitee they have told me that my land 'lies out of the planning development area of the villiage'. There is development around this area of land so I am finding it hard to understand why this piece of land cannot be developed on. It is sheltered and building would not cause any major disturbance to local residents. Has anyone dealt with a similar problem and can offer some adivce? I would greatly appreciate it.
