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
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
