So basically the establishment have legislated to control the population once again, what happened to being a free country?

Of course you can build on your woodland, or else it ain't your woodland, now is it?
Screw bureaucrats. If you buy a piece of property from someone, it's yours.
"Nope, you have to leave it lie, not allowed to live there. You must maintain your dwelling in our cities."
Piss off.

I know wtf. I want to buy a woodland to build a cabin and escape London. You can't do jack all in this country.

Amen! on my woodland I want to build an old fashioned timber frame house and live there. though I won't clear a bunch of trees to build it, it would have some open areas. (this is the UK after all)

I'm building here on my place as well.
Legally I'm supposed to at least notify (some people have to ask permission) the local bureaucrats, but I don't. It's my place, even though I have to pay a yearly extortion demand (they call taxes) or be robbed of it.
Like you, I'm not cutting down trees. I'm planting more and more of them.

Xavier Spade presume you refuse all state welfare and NHS if you object to paying tax ?

Technically there is nothing stopping anyone doing it in the reverse. Buy a piece of farmland, build your log cabin and then plant your woodland around it. It may take awhile to establish but you and generations to come will get to enjoy it. Also think of the multitude of wildlife that will be able to have the security of a new home that would not have necessarily have been planted there but by the dreams of one person/family to live in a simple cabin in the woods

It is quite ridiculous but not in my case I bought a 564 acre large peace of land in the uk (northern England) it is 530 acres of woodland and the rest 34 acres is grassland agricultural land that got added onto the deal. I've worked all my life and when I bought this peace of land for 17 million pounds I was outraged to find out that I could not build on it (my plan was to have me and my very large family build houses there and be self sufficient) and to solve this problem I went to court with a very powerful defence I came out and had a contract listing me to do what ever I want on my land whether it's hunting animals your not allowed to hunt or either digging down hundreds of feet for nothing the council removed all power lines and sewage pipes and any other stuff like that from my land and directed it around my land giving me complete freedom also listed on the Contract was that my land is private unless I say so and any one caught entering hunting or taking wood or soil from my land would get aHefty fine And this was all agreed upon that I allow them to use the 34 acres of grassland as land for dumping organic waste from the bin you know as the green bin and I agreed because this is nothing I could actually use this organic waste for huge composting to bag and sell but I said only if river and lakes are added they agreed I agreed and the contract was signed later that year we started construction of building 14 houses for family members all personally designed by them as well as we built a wall made out of huge cut rocks from the quarry cut to shape to allow animals and critters through but not humans we built roads connecting our houses and a water station where our water from streams would collect and clean and be pumped to our houses and from the 3 rivers that were added we dug channels that separated into about 20 other streams and on a few of them we added water wheels which generated electricity for us we cut away about and acre of woodland to add a wind turbine just 1 though but it's huge it generates most of our electricity and any extra electricity is transferred to the towns and other houses we also added a round about a 30 acre big lake which we added about 70 different species of fish and which we all fish on and to add to this we added creatures to the Forrest of such like red squirrels and deer and cattle also pigs and ducks we added a lot more but that's just an example and we were only allowed to add pig because the land is blocked of from a stone wall as pigs have not roamed free in the uk for quite some time now me and my family live completely of the land we hunt and raise and grow our own food we do not spend a single pence on bills as we form our own clean water power our homes with water wheels and wind turbines and heat our homes and cook our food with fire in fireplaces and wood burning cooking stoves I live a very happy life now and can finally feel as if Britain is a place of nature a place we're I can completely live off of the land.
