Self build and custom build register 2020

What is self build and custom build?

The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on councils to keep a register of individuals and community groups locally who want to acquire land for self-build homes and to have regard to these registers in carrying out its planning function.

We have created an online register of interest which will enable the Council to gather evidence to see if there is a demand for this type of development within the district. If the Council then becomes aware of land that may be suitable for self build it can highlight this register to the landowner/ agent.

Please be aware that self build homes are subject to the same requirement for planning permission as other homes.

Register your interest

If you would like to register your interest;

How we will use information from the register

By signing up, you will help us find out more about the demand for custom build plots within the borough, where people would like their plot to be and the type of house that they would like to build.

We shall use the information to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together. Registration does not however guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available.

We will not pass identifiable information from the Register onto anyone outside the Council without the written consent of the person who registered their details.
