Lifestyle and amenity land has been particularly sought after as Covid-19 increased the desire for more green space.
Demand from private investors and lifestyle buyers has grown and together they have accounted for 40% of land purchases in the last three years. There has also been an increased number of overseas buyers as the pound remains relatively weak.
