The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own home and requires specified local authorities to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who are seeking to acquire serviced plots of land in the authority’s area.
A serviced plot of land is defined in the regulations as being one that has access to a public highway and connections for electricity, water and waste water.
Parts A and B of this form request information that is required by the regulations.
Not all of this information will be published on the register but the Council needs to be satisfied that applicants are eligible to apply and that any house built will be the sole or main residence of an individual, or in the case of an association, the sole or main residence of all the individuals making up the association.
For more information and advice please visit the Self-build and customer Housebuilding register web page.
Part C of the form requests further information to enable the Council to gain a full picture of the demand for serviced plots but does not form part of the criteria for determining any application for entry on the register.
Once you have submitted a completed application for entry in the register the Council must determine this application within 28 days of the date that the application was received.
If you are eligible for entry in the register the Council will make an entry in the register and notify you giving you a unique reference number.
If the Council determines an applicant is not eligible for entry in the register we must notify you and give reasons.
