What is self-build and custom build?
Self-build usually means that you are directly involved in organising the design and construction of your new home. Custom build usually means working with a specialist developer to help you deliver your home. There may be some overlap between the two - for example some custom build developers offer the option of a serviced plot where you can design and build your own home as part of a larger scheme.
What is the purpose of the register?
The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own home. This register will provide an indication of the demand for self / custom build in Elmbridge and allow the Council to work to develop a range of suitable sites for development in this way.
If you are registered the Council will let you know if / when they have a suitable site in their ownership that meets your requirements. The questions are designed to give the Council a clear picture of your wishes and the type of site that would meet your requirements. We also need to understand how the financial side of the development will work so we need some details from you about what you can afford.
