East Cambridgeshire District Council has launched a self-build register on its website and is inviting everyone who has an interest in building their own home to sign up.
Ensuring the anonymity of contributors, the Council will use the information on the register to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together.
Anyone who wants to join the self-build register should go to /local-development-framework/register-interest-self-build-and-custom-housebuilding. If you want to find out more details about the register, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01353 665555.
The establishment of a self and custom-build register is in accordance with the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015.
To join a register, you must meet the following criteria (this applies to individuals looking to take on a project or each individual in a group):
- You must be aged 18 or over;
- You must be a British citizen, a national of a European Economic Area state other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland;
- You are looking to acquire a serviced plot of land in East Cambridgeshire to build a house to live in as your main residence.
