Self-build housing is defined as where an individual commissions or (whether acting alone or with other individuals) is personally involved in the design and construction of a dwelling that is intended to be the individual's main residence once it is built.

There are many types of self-build and custom-build. Further information on self-build is available on external websites here:

Self-build Register

Planning authorities are required to prepare, maintain and publish a list of persons who have registered an interest with the authority with the intention of acquiring land in the authority's area for self-build housing. This will help us to understand the demand for self-build plots in the area and to develop policies and guidance where necessary to support self-build.

An online survey is available here to register an interest in self-build housing: Self Build Register
