Self Build

The Council is committed to supporting access to both affordable and market housing for local people. This includes supporting people wishing to build their own homes.

Self Build Image

Self build housing, also known as Custom Build, typically involves individuals commissioning the construction of a new house from a builder, contractor, package company or physically building a house for themselves.

It also includes community-led housing projects who build mostly affordable homes for the benefit of the community, either individually or in cooperation with a builder or housing provider.  Residential refurbishment projects involving the conversion or regeneration of disused buildings may also be considered part of Custom Build housing.
