Self-build and custom housebuilding

Join the self-build and custom housebuilding register

The Council maintains a register of people who want to buy a serviced plot of land in the Borough to build a home. Applicants who join the register benefit by receiving details of available plots from landowners and developers.

To join the register you must be:

  • aged 18 or over
  • a British citizen, a citizen of an EU country or of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland
  • seeking, either alone or with others, to acquire a serviced plot of land in the Borough to build a home
  • able to demonstrate a local connection

If you are making a joint application one person needs to be appointed to act as lead contact for the purposes of correspondence between the Council and the joint applicants. You can download the PDF file below and email it to the Council at [email protected] to apply to join the register.
