Custom and self-build register data

About the register

The custom and self-build register is a register of people who are interested in custom or self-build projects in the borough. Keeping this register helps us understand the level of demand for custom and self-build plots. It will help us develop a strategy for matching people to plots in the area. To find out more, or to join the register, please visit our building or organising the build of your own home page.
