Self-build and custom housebuilding

We are currently experiencing technical issues with our online forms. We apologise for the inconvenience and are working to get the problem rectified as soon as possible.

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.
