New legislation for Local authorities to assess demand for self build and custom build.

New legislation in the form of The Self Build and Custom Housebuilding Register Regulations 2016 has been enacted today which means that local authorities must establish and maintain a register of would be self builders and custom builders seeking (either alone or with others) to acquire a serviced plot of land in the relevant authority’s area to build and occupy a house as that individual’s sole or main residence.

The new legislation has designed to help councils assess demand for self build and custom build housebuilding which forms an important element of each authorities assessment of housing need as detailed in the Governments Planning Practice Guidance Methodology: Assessing Housing Need

Up until now most authorities have not really had the tools to be able to assess this need, which has made it very difficult to accurately plan for future land use requirements. It is hoped the legislation will really bring on change and will give a true picture of the demand for self build and custom build in the UK. The government has produced draft planning practice guidance to help local authorities comply with the new legislation.
