Well it doesn't look like anything's going to happen about the breach of covenant. That's obviously been going on for decades with no action being taken.
As for the possible contamination - again there's plenty advice on the internet about what you can do to mitigate it. Only you can decide whether to take it or leave it.
However, for what you want the land for, I would possibly be more interested in where the nearest water and electricity supply would come from. You can't rely on running a market garden with rain water alone, and although you can use solar or generator power, a mains electricity supply would be much more convenient and lack of it could limit your future plans. 


I have recently developed a green field site with absolutely no services and you would not believe how much it can cost to get things connected.

Hi again,
A little bit further on and after a bit more investigation it appears that there are no electrical services in the road, and so no possibility of connecting up to the grid. This is really disappointing!

If I wanted to connect up I'm assuming that the distribution company would need to install underground electrical cables in the roadside? Can they refuse to do this ??? What are my options ??

Fortunately the mains water supply IS connected.

I would expect the electricity connection to be £000s, in that case.

Could you run with solar panels and a small wind turbine?

Yep, I think off-grid is my only option here.
I guess the problem is that although I don't intend to live on the land I'm still going to need electricity for site security (CCTV), warehouse/storage for vegetable production (walk-in chiller) is absolutely essential during the summer months.
Giving that this is agricultural land, would the installation of renewable energy systems like the ones you mention even be allowed ?
