Buying land in order to build their own home

AVDC is required by the Self Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 to maintain a register of all individuals and groups interested in buying a plot of land in order to self or custom build their own home

The register will help us assess the demand for this this type of housing in our district. It provides us with valuable information which we can use to shape our planning and housing policies. It does not mean that we can guarantee a suitable plot of land will become available.

In order to register you must be (as an individual);

  • aged 18 or older

  • a British citizen, a national of an EEA state other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland and,

  • seeking (either alone or with others) to acquire a serviced plot of land in Aylesbury Vale to build a house to occupy as an individual’s sole or main residence

If you are a group or 'association' interested in registering, each member of the association must meet all of the above criteria.

If you meet these criteria and would like to register your interest in self build and custom housebuilding please use the online application form. We will contact you within 28 days to let you know if you are eligible for the register.

If you would like to find out more information on self and custom build the National Custom & Self Build Association (NaCSBA) has a Self Build Portal

If you have any queries regarding the register please email us
