Need-a-Plot

If you are keen to get your self build underway the first thing to do is to highlight that you are looking for a building plot. 'Need-a-Plot noticeboards' have been placed on the map below by people who are actively LOOKING FOR LAND. And, if YOU Need-a-Plot, then you can place one too! - enabling thousands of people to see what sort of plot you're looking for and where you'd like it.

Its also a great way of people teaming up to buy larger sites that can be split into individual plots. It's free - so give it a go! To find out what's involved click here »

Do you have land for sale?

You might not Need-a-Plot but instead have a building plot for sale - the noticeboards on the map have been placed by people who might need exactly what you have. If you have land for sale, scour the map below to see if there is a need for land matching what you hold. Once you find a suitable match, simply click on the noticeboard, make contact and offer up!
