Self-Build and Custom Build Register


In accordance with the Government’s aim to boost housing supply by supporting self-build and custom building, the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on certain public authorities to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who wish to acquire serviced plots of land to bring forward self-build and custom housebuilding projects.

Winchester City Council’s Self-Build and Custom Build Register was launched on the 1st of April 2016.

As part of our obligations for keeping a register we must report back to the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) on the number of people on our register and the number of permissions granted for self-build and custom build plots.
