I'm all for what you say, I was suggesting the problem is the poster wasn't alert enough to what is going on around his property.
Most people assume all they have to do is buy the land and sit tight for that cloudless day 15 years from now when they'll retire and start a hog farm on the 50 acres. Trouble is things may become
very real-estate volatile around his land, with people liking the scenery and start opening up bed-and-breakfasts and tourist interests for example. If the guy with the 50 acres suddenly realizes he's in the middle of a building project, the county will usually side with existing and established residences in making the final decision. The ones already established usually carry the most weight. There is nothing sinister in this reasoning by the county. People living on their land have wells and septic systems. So they have an interest in assuring children and everyone will not get diseases from polluted waters that the 50 acre guy may cause.
So your right it's unfair, but the time to complain is when the guy asks permission to start a B&B. That's when you tell the county nothin doing because your opening a hog operation one day (put it in writing too and send it registered mail, so they can use it whenever a case may surface concerning adjoining property). Doing so sends up red flags as to your intent, and there isn't anything wrong with that.
You gotta watch what the next guy is doing and what he wants, or you could get trapped.
