Building your own home

Self-build and custom housebuilding register

If you want to join our register, you'll need to tell us if you are interested in self or custom build housing.

End of year report

Self-build

You are organising all the work yourself, including:

  • finding a plot
  • checking that it can be connected to utilities
  • hiring an architect
  • applying for planning permission
  • sourcing good builders

Custom build

You have bought a plot in a development site, sometimes known as a serviced plot.

For this, the owner of the development site will already have:

  • permissions to build
  • connections to utilities

Select your local area and complete the form below so we can check if you are eligible for the self-build and custom housebuilding register.
