A lead economist is predicting an upturn in the self build market, despite new figures showing minimal growth in the number of planning applications for new self build homes in 2015.
Just under 18,000 were submitted last year, 30 per cent below the historic 2010 peak figure. The latest data from construction industry analysts Barbour ABI also indicates that self build planning applications in 2015 were the second lowest for eight years, with only 2014 faring worse. These figures are more surprising considering the apparent turn-around over the last two years within the housing market.
