Determination, imagination and measured compromise will help you achieve this crucial first step in the self build process. Our plot finding tips may also help.

From April 1st 2016
The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a legal duty on ALL Local Authorities to create and manage a SELF BUILD and CUSTOM HOME Register. We strongly recommend that any individual or community group wishing to build or commission their own home joins this register. Local Authorities must have regard for the evidence of demand shown by the register and should use the information to shape their planning policies, land use and decision making processes - to actively support those wishing to build their own home. Contact your Local Authority to join their Register if you are interested in self build/custom build now or in the future
