The article looks at the condition of the land market in Oxfordshire, England and its adjacent counties in 2007. The significant increases in the market were driven by strong demand for land with residential or amenity property competing in a market with limited supply. At the start of year, Savills sold a 300-acre dairy unit in south Oxfordshire for over £2 million. It notes that the expanding demand for biofuels and a shortage of grain and other produce are reflected in the land market.
