Houses which are situated outside the town settlement zone are unfortunately limited in the amount they can increase by. This is due to planning constraints issued by the local borough councils to help ensure economically  and environmentally sustainable development.  Basically a bunch of hoops you have to jump through in order to get planning, but don’t fear, Lewis Visuals is here to guide you.
