If you’re thinking of building your own home, please complete this registration form.
If you would like to discuss your project, or are a local landowner with a piece of land you believe may be suitable for self-build, you can use our planning pre-application advice service.
The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own home.
Under the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015, local authorities have a statutory duty to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who are seeking to acquire serviced plots of land in the authority’s area in order to build houses for those individuals to occupy as homes.
The information from the Register will be used to gain an understanding of the demand and help develop suitable housing and planning policies.
We shall also use the information to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together. Registration does not guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available.
