Farmer turns down £275MILLION to sell his land for housing: Father-of-two says he would be ‘doing a massive disfavour’ to community if he ‘took the money and ran’
‘A farmer has rejected a £275million offer for his land from housing developers wanting to build a new town.
Robert Worsley said he would be ‘doing a massive disfavour’ to the community where he has lived all his life if he ‘took the money and ran’.
The 48-year-old father of two has run 550-acre farm for the last 15 years. He was approached by agents for housebuilder Mayfield more than two years ago.’
