Self Build and Custom Build Register

The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on local councils in England to keep and have regard to a register of people who are interested in self-build or custom build projects in their area. This register will help inform the Council of the level of demand for self-build and custom build plots in East Northamptonshire.

What are Self-Build and Custom Build?

The terms "self-build" and "custom build" are used to describe instances where individuals or groups are involved in creating their own home.

Self Build - Projects where individuals or groups directly organise the design and construction of their new homes

Custom Build - Projects where individuals or groups work with a specialist developer to help deliver their new home

Self-Build and Custom Build Register

To express your interest for a custom or self-build plot, please complete the online form below

Registration does not guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available. At this stage, you are not making any commitment - but by signing up you will help us find out more about the demand for self-build and custom build housing in East Northamptonshire, where people would like their plot to be and the type of housing that they would like to build.

In submitting this form, you are agreeing that we can use the data you provide to understand the demand for custom build and self-build housing.

Personal details included on the register will not be made public, but headline data may be published i.e. overall number of individuals/groups registered, geographical areas of interest, type of housing sought etc.
