Self-build and custom housebuilding

Dear Customers, please be aware that there could be disruptions to online payments on Sunday September 22 between 8am and 12pm due to essential maintenance taking place. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The government is keen to promote self-build and custom housebuilding as a way of increasing the overall number of homes and to encourage the growth of the custom build sector.

The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 requires us to keep a register of people seeking to buy land to build a home themselves. We then have to consider the information on the register in using our planning functions.

Personal details included on the register will not be made public; however headline data can be extracted from it and published. This could include for example; overall numbers of registered entries for different types of categories, geographical areas of interest and the types of housing wanted.
