The Department does not hold data on the average cost of building a house, including the purchase of land. The Department has published 'Land Value Estimates for policy appraisal 2019'. These show at local level the value of agricultural land before development. They also show the residual land value after development (broken down by residential, commercial and industrial). These tables, as well as guidance for their use, can be found online at gov.uk here.
