Yes it is a complex subject. Here in Suffolk Trinity college Cambridge owns most of the farms near us & are more interested in selling it off for a quick profit for housing no one wants whilst brownfield sites remain.

It clearly isn't one size fits all

I remember being told whilst at Cambridge that you could walk from Cambridge to London entirely on land owned by Trinity. Not sure how true, but unsurprising.

I was surprised by some of what they own - the O2 dome & Dunsfold aerodrome for example.

A lot of the wife family went to Trinity, fell in with a dodgy crowd & the next few generations have given it a miss. I think the last one there was in about 1520

One was there at the same time as Isaac Newton, one became master & the one that fell out of favour was chaplin to Charles 1 - he lost almost everything apart from his head.

I did some surveying there a couple of years back & came face to face with a portrait of my children 9x great grandfather.

You can almost feel the history in some of these places, especially behind the scenes where things have remained unchanged for centuries.

Although I blagged my way in through a (now closed) backdoor - it was definitely a privilege to study (?) there. Going back tomorrow to meet up with a mate for a few cheeky sherbets and a reminisce.

It is an eye opener discovering who landowners are from a whole range of types.
Churches of all denominations, education, private estates handed down over centuries, National Trust, heritage organisations like Cadw in Wales, large companies, local authorities, railways, speculators ( woodland often bought as a tax incentive), Royalty. Some are just in the background and not actively involved, just sitting on the ownership.
There are political moves to increase housing due to a shortage. Boris is pushing through changes to Planning Laws and rules. Many planning professionals are cringing. They just want the present system tidying up. Not reinvented.
Here in our town there are mixed results from plans. The town used to be a major industrial centre but over the years it has deteriorated. We now have grant funded changes with leisure based projects. A large project has started to create a wellness centre linked to medical, fitness leisure on a large ex industrial area. It is near the coast with access relatively good on newish roads bypassing the town itself. Other local developments have caused problems in traffic chokepoints.
One thing that has disappeared is allotments. Newer housing seems to have small gardens so little room to encourage home grown food. A nonsense that planning should address with creating allotments. Developers should create allotments on developments if they reduce garden size to squeeze more profit generating houses in. Parking is another issue.

We have been looking to move - almost impossible to find a 5 bed house with double garage + four off road parking places. We are a family of 6 with 5 driving licenses so need the space.

One development near Cambridge we looked at a few years back had to provide both allotments and caravan / trailer parking facilities as part of the new village plan. I would rather have the space attached to the house!

Plenty of room here wink with a sea view for free.. We have a grass airstrip 5 miles away as the crow flies.

No1 Daughter and family have a large 5 bedroom place with all your requirements in Great Cambourne phase two which they are happy with, they rent one of their other four bedroom one's out on the estate but that's a single garage only with plenty of parking space and large garden.

I wouldn't worry too much about what privileges farmers get or don't get it wont be long till all the land is built on or has alternative usage, then you can complain about being held to ransom by foreign powers as food prices increase and no where to walk your dogs.
