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.
Our register has two sections, Part 1 and Part 2.
In addition to national eligibility criteria, AVDC has set out additional local eligibility criteria for people who would like to register for Part 1. Part 1 of the register has the potential to influence our future plans. There is a £25 administration charge to join Part 1 of the register.
If you are a group or ‘association’ interested in registering, each member of the association must meet all of the criteria for the section you would like to join.
For more information on Part 1 and Part 2 and our local eligibility criteria please download our Self Build Register Advice Note.
If you would like to register your interest in self build and custom housebuilding please complete our online application form. We will contact you within 28 days to let you know if you are eligible for the register.
Alternatively, you can download the form to post to us if you would prefer.
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 SelfBuildRegister@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk.
