The Self Build Register

The Self-Build and Custom House building Act 2015 places a duty on councils to keep a register of individuals and community groups locally who want to acquire land for self-build homes and to have regard to these registers in carrying out its planning function.

We are looking at  gathering evidence to see if there is a demand for this type of development within Staffordshire Moorlands. If we then become aware of land that may be suitable for self build, we can highlight this information to relevant parties. 

Read about the legislation.

Please be aware that self build homes are subject to the same requirement for planning permission as other homes.

Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria below:

  • you are over 18
  • the property will be your sole or main residence
  • you are a British citizen or a national of an EEA State other than the UK or Switzerland
