Self Build Register

Why are local authorities creating a register?

The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on local authorities in England to keep a register of people who are interested in self build or custom build projects in their area. This register will help inform the Council of the scale and type of demand for self-build and custom build plots in Crawley.

What is self-build and custom build?

Self-build projects are defined as those where someone directly organises the design and construction of their own home. This covers a wide range of projects including a traditional DIY self-build home to projects where the self-builder employs someone to build their home for them. Community-led projects can also be defined as self-build.

Custom build homes are where you work with a developer as an individual or a group to help deliver your own home. The developer may help to find a plot and manage the construction of the home. This is more of a hands-off approach.

Joining the register

If you wish to join the register, please complete the online form . Depending on eligibility, applicants will be added to part 1 or part 2 of the register. Part 1 will directly influence the council’s Planning Policies, and entry is subject to local eligibility criteria regarding applicants’ connections with Crawley and ability to buy plots. Part 2 of the register will be a more general guide to levels of demand for self-build/custom-build plots, and will inform the council’s approach to its land-use and housing functions. Entry to part 2 is only subject to the following criteria, which also are also applicable to part 1:
