Custom and Self Build

The Local Plan 2013-33 promotes Custom and Self Build homes, there is a ‘Teignbridge Rule’, Teignbridge Planning policy (WE7) requirement for 5% of plots on sites of 20 dwellings or more to be serviced and marketed to custom or self builders. We have a register of people who have expressed interest in Custom and Self Build. As at 30 October 2020 there are 55 new individuals on the register. It is estimated that a further 187 self build plots will be brought forward on large sites over the 2020-33 period.Custom and Self Build Homes

This is in addition to windfall development that can be expected to take place.

Housing Registers

Custom and Self Build Register

The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own homes. The self-build and custom house building register will provide an indication of demand for self and custom build in our area that can be used when developing housing and planning policies. Further information is available on our Custom and Self Build webpage.

Since 1 April 2016 we have been required to keep a register of people looking for land in our area on which to build their own homes. Also to ‘have regard’ to it in our planning, housing and regeneration functions and when disposing of any of our land. For full details please see the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015.

Brownfield Register

The Government has required all Local Authorities to publish an annual Brownfield Register of all brownfield (previously developed land) from the end of December 2017 and then annually.

Housing Land Supply Statements

Planning Authorities are required to keep a deliverable housing supply to meet needs for at least the coming 5 years.  The five Year Land Supply statement and Gypsy/Traveller Land Supply both were published in June 2020.

Post Occupancy Surveys

Each year we do a survey of residents of new homes.
