Understanding the self-build sector

There is a well-documented housing crisis in this country. Housing building with regard to the number of units being delivered falls well short of the annual requirement nationwide. The new housing market is dominated by a small number of large nationwide housebuilders, however their products are seen by many as not providing value for money or properties to meet their needs.

The self-build sector allows people to bring forward cost effective developments which are design to meet their every need. As such the sector has been recognised by the Government as an important component in assisting with housing delivery with an overarching aim to delivery 20,000 self-build dwellings built per year by 2020. In order to assist delivery of self-build housing there have been new elements of legislation and new guidance which are designed to boost delivery and help keep self-building affordable.

The workshop will provide an essential overview with regard to:

  • An introduction to custom and self-build
  • A review of key planning legislation concerning self-build
  • Explaining 'The right to build'
  • The different types of self-build projects
  • Examples of self-build projects
  • An overview at how national and local planning policy affects self-build

Once you understand the background and the sector you can focus on the detailed issue and the type of project that you may wish to undertake.
