Self-build and Custom Housebuilding

Self and Custom Build Register

The Council is compiling a register of people who are interested in self or custom build. To be accepted on the register, the following criteria must be met:

  • You are aged 18 or over
  • You are a British Citizen, a national of EEA State other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland; and
  • You are seeking (as an individual or group) to acquire a serviced plot/s of land in the relevant authority's area to build a house to occupy as that individual's sole or main residence

Please note that an application for entry on the Register does not guarantee inclusion on the Register and we may ask you to provide evidence that you meet all of the eligibility criteria.

Registration also does not guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available to meet your needs. You are not making any commitment at this stage - but by signing up you will help us find out more about the demand for Self-build and Custom build housing in the borough, where people would like their plot to be located and the type of housing that they would like to build.

If you wish to be added to this register complete the online form or download and email to housingdevelopment@wellingborough.gov.uk.

Once any plots of land have been identified self-build applicants will be subjected to financial viability checks when plots of land become available.  

More help on Custom and Self Build can be found at The Self-Build Portal and the Custom and Self-build Toolkit.
