Self build and custom build advice - The register

Bassetlaw District Council supports innovative solutions which deliver new homes to the district. Here you will find out about what Bassetlaw District Council is doing to support people interested in designing or building their own home.

The Register

As required by the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015, and Self-build and Custom Housebuilding (Register) Regulations 2016, Bassetlaw District Council holds a register of individuals, and associations of individuals, who are seeking to acquire serviced plots of land in the authority’s area, in order to build dwellings to occupy as their homes. As well as personal information and contact details, the register also captures the type, size and location preference which is helps the council when assessing demand and advising developers.

How Can the Register help you? 

The Register is an option intended to ease the route-in for self-builders by removing the complexities of installing services and seeking planning approval (planning permission would be provided ‘in principle’ for ‘services plots’). However, there are some limitations of the regulations that could mean the Register is not the best route for all.
