It may soon be a lot easier to make your self build dream a reality in Bristol.
South Gloucestershire Council is going to be one of the first to try out a new scheme. Self builders will be asked to sign up, once a plot is available they will be contacted.
Individual or community self builders are all welcome to sign up. The scheme is designed to match up self builders with land owners trying to sell their land. Planning Permission and all associated legalities will still apply.
The scheme is called the Self Build and Custom Housebuilding Act and was introduced in 2015. This act requires local authorities to retain information of those interested in finding suitable plots of land for self building purposes.
Funding may also be sought from the Homes and Communities Agency through The Custom Build Serviced Plots Loan Fund.
Interested parties can sign up to the Local Self Build Register at localselfbuildregister.co.uk.
