need to know Over 40,000 people want to self build

2019 is shaping up to be a key year for custom and self build in England. On 30th October, the first period of registration under the Right to Build will come to fruition and we’ll see how local authorities have met their responsibilities under the legislation. Those who have signed up for the scheme will be keen to see what provision for plots of land has been made.

NaCSBA has been chasing up councils, and in November it submitted a freedom of information (FOI) request to all 336 English planning authorities to see how things are progressing. This includes determining how many people have joined since the last FOI request in 2017, which constituencies require a local connection test for applicants and if they are charging for the privilege of being on their list. The results have been interesting.
