The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 states that all local authorities must keep a register of people interested in building their own home in the local area.
What is custom and self-build housing?
Custom and self-build housing is built by individuals or groups for their own use. Self-build projects are those where a person directly organises the design and construction of their own home, including where a self-builder employs someone to build their home for them.
Custom build homes are where a person or group works with a developer to have their home designed and built to their requirements. This may include circumstances where a developer manages the finance and construction of the build.
