By signing up, you will help us find out more about the demand for custom build plots in the Borough, where people would like their plot to be and the type of house that they would like to build. You will also be registering your interest in purchasing a plot should one become available. We shall use the information to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together.
Registration does not however guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available and the Council does not necessarily own land which it can use to provide plots for custom build.
We will not pass identifiable information from the Register on to anyone outside the Council, without the consent of the person who has registered.
If you would like to know more about the Custom and Self Build project, have any queries about the registration, or would like a copy of the registration form sent to you, please contact us, see contact details below.
