Custom and Self-Build Homes

The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 states that all local authorities must keep a register of individuals and associations interested in finding land on which they can custom or self build properties

Fylde Council is undertaking as assessment of the level of demand for Self-build and custom build housing development in the area.

Self and custom build have been defined as:

Self build - projects where individuals or groups directly organise the design and construction of their new home(s)

Custom build - project where individuals or groups work with specialist developer(s) to help deliver their new home(s)

If you are interested in the idea of building your own home and to take part in this process the Council is asking you to complete the on-line form, this will help to develop housing and planning policies to support the kind of self and custom building projects that would be most appropriate for this area.

It intends to create a register of those people interested in self or custom build homes in accordance with the requirements of the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015.

General Information:

At this stage, you are not making any commitment - the Council is just trying to find out how much local demand there is for self-build housing.

In preparing this register, the Council are making no commitment to provide self-build or custom-build plots.

In submitting the on-line form, you are agreeing that the Council 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 anonymised headline data extracted from it will be published annually (i.e overall number of registered entries for various categories, geographical areas of interest, types of housing sought etc.) in the Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR)

More information is available on the National Custom & Self Build Association and The Self Build Portal websites.
