Self/Custom Build Register


In recent years, the Government has stated it wants to encourage and enable individuals/groups to build their own home.


This process was formally confirmed by the Self-build and Custom Housing Act 2015, which places an obligation on Councils to create and maintain a Self/Custom Build Registers, and to use it as appropriate to encourage/facilitate individuals/groups building there own homes. 

Why We Are Collecting This Information

The creation and maintaining a self/custom build register is a statutory responsibility contained within The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 (as amended by the Housing and Planning Act 2016).


By completing this form we can gauge the interest for self/custom build plots across the borough, and design a system to connect landowners and interested individuals.

Signing up to the register does not guarantee a suitable plot will be found. However, if a suitable plot is found, we will not pass on any details without first obtaining consent to do so.

Requirements such as obtaining planning permission and building regulations will still have to be obtained as appropriate.
