We were the first council in England to adopt a policy on self build homes, known as the 'Teignbridge Rule'.
We are delivering on its promise to help people design and build their own dream home, with the formal adoption of its Custom and Self Build Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) by Executive Committee on 19th July 2016
The SPD sets out our objectives and expectations in delivering custom and self build housing. The document is aimed at informing planning decisions made by us when determining planning applications. The SPD will be of particular relevance to self build plot providers, developers building more than 20 dwellings, communities involved in Neighbourhood Planning and people wishing to build their own home.
