It shows how short memories are: IIRC last time round the FC paid out more 
in grant aid to some new owners than they got for the land.

One site in Surrey with only one bridleway and a footpath became 
essentially closed to the public (it was like like a small bit of Wales 
to walk through) whilst the new owner abused the planning system.
