Land register for custom builders
A NEW register for budding self builders looking for land in their local areas has demonstrated significant demand, with over 1,000 registrations in the first month.
The Custom Build Register (www.custombuildregister.co.uk) was set up by self-build specialists, Buildstore.
The Custom Build model is being promoted as a way to allow local councils and other landowners and housing providers to release land so they can deliver selfbuilds on a larger scale. Swindon Borough Council and Buildstore are leading the way offering a total of 12 plots, complete with detailed planning permission for detached four-bedroom homes
Other councils are being urged to follow the lead.
