How does it work?

The Local Self Build Register gathers information from people who want to build their own home in any part of the UK and holds it securely for use by local authorities.

You can register your interest in as many local authority areas as you like. We will only pass your information on to the local councils that you specify and give us permission to do so.

The information will be passed on to relevant local authorities who have signed up to use this register.  This means there is no guarantee that the local authorities that you have selected will receive your details as not all authorities are using this register.  However your details will contribute anonymously to statistical reports such as national and regional summaries, which could help create more opportunities for the kinds of projects you are interested in.

Local councils can then use the Register to gather the information they need about self build demand, and to build up a list of people who are interested in plots in their local area.
