Your voice counts!

Local authorities in England are required to research demand for self build plots in their area and from 1st April 2016 the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 obliges them to maintain a list of people and groups interested in building their own homes. Local councils in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are also exploring how to support self build and custom build projects.

We’ve been running the Local Self Build Register since 2014 as an independent platform to make it simple for people to register their interest in self build and custom build and to help local authorities gather names and information quickly and easily.

To understand how the new legislation affects you and to make sure that your name gets on the list where you would like to build, please read this Important news about your Right to Build before you register here.
