Self-build and custom housebuilding

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that from August 8 it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, in this news story.

Customers may experience online payment disruptions on Sunday August 16th between 4:30-6:30am due to essential maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

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.
