Self-build and custom-build homes

Register your interest in self-build or custom-build homes in Aldershot or Farnborough.

The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on local authorities to keep a register of people and groups of people who are interested in self-build or custom-build projects in their areas.

We have established a register to help determine the level of demand for self-build and custom-build homes in Rushmoor.

About self-build and custom-build homes

Self-build and custom-build describe situations where individuals or groups are involved in creating their own home.

Self-build projects are defined as those where an individual or a group of individuals directly organises the design and construction of their new home. Although this includes the 'traditional' self-build home where a self-builder manages the design and build process and completes much of the building work, self-building does not necessarily mean picking up bricks. Self-builders may commission an architect or builder, organise a project, or do some of the construction or finishing-off work. Most self-builders will be involved in the creative side of the process.

Custom-build describes a more 'hands-off' approach where a specialist developer co-ordinates the process for the people involved to deliver a tailor-made home.
