We have 9 acres, that included a farm yard and pole barnes, just outside of the building line and had a craft workshop on it. Wanted a mobile home as a food hut, etc. Several nights our son slept over instead of driving back to his own home after he finished work.
He was reported! We had letters from PC they had a meeting and environmental officers were called out. When we met them they were quite nasty. They even spied some hay stacked up and asked us if it was for our own animals. We told the truth and said it was a friend's and the cows in the field were the local farmers. They told us the bales had to be removed.
They said they also wanted a pile of builders rubble (we had dug some out of the farmyard that was part of the land) as we were not allowed to store that there. It left us feeling we had this land but we were not allowed to do anything on it. In fact it was not visible from the road what we were doing there - but - someone didn't like it.
We then paid for a land agent to advise us what we could and could not do on our land. He said as the Mobile Home was only for protection and making refreshments whilst visiting the land they couldn't stop us, Sleeping over was a deffinate 'No'.
So looks like if we built one like Kevin we would have been OK.
