Teignbridge lands £100,000 to boost self build work 

Teignbridge District Council has been given £100,000 to help self-builders get their projects off the ground.

Teignbridge is one of only 11 areas to have been named by the Department for Communities and Local Government as a Right to Build vanguard which will help prospective self-builders secure a plot of land.

The money will allow Teignbridge to continue its great work in bringing shovel-ready sites and help people secure a suitable plot of land so they can design and build their own home.

About Self Build

We are 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 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.
