Building On Z1 Z3 Land

Post by hourani » 21 Jun 2019 11:44

Can some one tell me if I am allowed to build a metal structure greenhouse on Z1 and Z3 Land. I am planing to buy a 25000 Sq meters plot and build a 6000 Sqm Greenhouse on it for starters. is this possible or knowing that 87% of the plot is Zoned Z1 and 13% Z1.

Hi Raed and welcome to the forum

I know Z1 and Z3 are protected zones, but I don't know what (if anything) you can build on them.

Pan a regular visitor here may know - or you can ask at the Town Planning Department.

Z1 zone is 6% build and cover, i am not sure about Z3 at the moment.

If you could build the max cover would be around 1500m2 in a 25000m2 plot.

If the plot has no registered road access or right if way then you cannot get a permit.

Even though these are protected zones they may make an exception for a greenhouse or an agricultural building such as storage.

To be sure, you need to get someone to look up the development plan of the area and then seek advice from the area planning department.

Don’t just buy it on a maybe. What i always advise my clients is to have an agreement with the owner on price, you fund the drawings and application and so on and if permission is granted then buy it. If not at worst it only cost you the drawing and application fees.
Additionally, if the owner has had the land for some time, he is more likely to get planning than a new buyer.

Hope that helps
