  'The main criteria to get permission for a house is need to be on site for animal welfare.'

  Does this apply if your plot is only 0.5-1 acre?

The main criteria is to provide at least one full time job with a sustainable income of @£14 k where 24 hour supervision is justified on welfare grounds.
And it is very unlikely you would be able to prove justification on such a size plot

I know someone who bought some land, decided to do ostrich farming, which requires permanent supervision due to being a 'dangerous animal'. He ended up with a large house on the land eventually...

(that could all be BS, but it's the story he told me)

BS  should that be OS?  :roflanim:

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

............. and what about a  canal boat?

A canal boat on wheels? Should confuse them :roflanim: :roflanim:
..or dig a pond for it...

Amphibious tiny house is a brilliant idea.

No problem with floods

This sounds like a cracking loophole!

I lived in my small caravan for two years with no fuss, the caravan is still there and no-one has bothered me, but my land is well off the beaten track.
I have one neighbour who lives in a tepee and another in a converted horse box. He was reported and told to move it but he said no and was given a wheelie bin and a council tax bill.
People always say.....what if everyone did this.......but, truly, how many people would want to? Most folk are conventional (and law abiding) and to be truthful it's not the most comfortable way of living so I don't suppose there would be an epidemic of caravans and tents.
Just make sure it is screened from any road/public right of way.
(Why do I feel a wave of indignation coming my way!)
No indignation from me, you are my hero

Brilliant! Not at all indignified either  :eyelashes: :excited:
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Sorry but it's not a loophole. Living on the land, whether in boat, tent or converted plane still counts as a change of use and requires planning.

Rules are made:
  for the guidance of wise men
  and the obedience of fools.
