About us

The Local Self Build Register has been set up by Ecomotive to help self builders and local authorities communicate with each other. This should make it easier for people to find suitable building plots in their area of interest.

Ecomotive is a social enterprise working to create more sustainable communities through supporting and enabling self-build and self-finish projects that have environmental, social and economic sustainability at their core.

As well as operating the Local Self Build Register, we also offer training, consultancy, design and project management services to self builders, academic institutions, developers, housing associations and local authorities.

We were instrumental in setting up the National Self Build Association in 2008 (now the National Custom and Self Build Association, NaCSBA) and have played a key role in its work on community-led self build and custom build. We also collaborate closely with other community-led housing organisations such as the UK Cohousing Network and the CLT Network.
