Agricultural Land Use
Agricultural land denotes land sutiable for agricultural production, both crops and livestock. Agricultural land is separated into two different categories, arable land and pasture land. Agricultural land follows an Agricultural Land system. The Agricultural Land Classification (ALC) provides a method for assessing the quality of agricultural land. The higher the grading, the better and more versatile the agricultural land is.
The Agricultural Land Classification grading system is also used by local planning authorities, developers and the public if development is poposed on agricultural land.
Grazing Land Use
Grazing land, or pasture land, is the most common type of land for sale. Grazing land can be either lush grassland or arable land that has been seeded. Pasture land is typically used for grazing livestock, but it's location, access and size can increase it's potential for other uses such as paddock conversion or long-term investment.
Paddocks are generally small acreages of grazing land. Due to the scarcity of paddocks and of small acreages suitable for paddock conversion, land used for paddocks is generally "off cut" from larger pacels of grazing land. The size of paddock use varies, but typically the size required is one acre per horse.
Paddocks and land suitable for paddock conversion are in high demand due to the limited supply of small parcels of land. Vantage Land specialise in paddock land and providing you with the acreage you require and are happy to discuss your paddock requirements with you.
Recreational Land Use
Recreational land can be used for a wide range of activities, including quad biking, off-roading, archery or for a simple gathering of family and friends. Recreational land can also be that with fishing, shooting or sporting rights.
As quad-biking, motor-cross and off-roading are noisy pursuits, land purchased for these is usually more remotely located, though an accessible road is require, and not near residential development. Quieter activities, such as archery, may have other specific requirements i.e. flat land open land.
A smallholding is generally a piece of land between 1-50 acres that is used for the cultivation or growing of vegetables or the breeding of farm animals, i.e. a small farm. Smallholdings don't have to include buildings / barns, but it is the general perception that they do as somewhere to store tools used to work on the land.
Finding private woodland is still relatively difficult. Woodland can be used for a wide range of outdoor activities including paint balling, archery, tree climbing and cycling. Many people buy woodland for their own enjoyment and to have a place to be at one with nature.
Strategic land is arable or pasture land that can be used for any of the land uses above. The land usually doesn't have planning permission but due to numerous factors could benefit from development hope value. Stratgic land is typically close to dense existing development, in areas of housing need with an existing infrastructure. Strategic land usually benefits from good access and road frontage. The value of strategic land varies depending on these factors, though agricultural land in general is often seen as good long-term investment.
