@Ã‚Â£125 a square foot!
Average UK home of a (embarrassing) 993.5 sq feet is therefore going to be under Ã‚Â£125k. What justification is there for anyone to have to pay many, many times that when a plot of agricultural land can be acquired for a few grand? What would at least make things a little more competitive is if the land seller and builder were decoupled. So Mr Rentier could provide standard sized plots for sale for Ã‚Â£lots and then the buyer could choose from a panel of say 5 manufacturers. Then Mr local government could say to Mr Rentier that'll be Ã‚Â£ to provide all the infrastructure that the value of your plot is derived from.
