6 Self-Build Plots

We have been working on creating self-build plots for family members of a landowner and for market sale.

6 Self-Build Plots

Over the past two years, we have been working with landowners who want to sell their land for self-build plots. These landowners want to do something for the community, they want to walk into the pub and feel proud that they ‘did the right thing’.

They have children and grandchildren who would benefit from the plots themselves. While remaining plots could be sold on the open market, they feel that this will offer much nicer, better quality housing in their home villages than the standard red brick boxes that appear all over the country.
Red brick boxes can be too expensive for young people and are poor quality. They also lack garden space. Communities do not welcome more of this kind of development and landowners don’t want to just sell to the highest bidder. More important is often that new homes are an asset to the village, rather than a blight on the landscape. This is where selling your land for self build plots comes into it’s own. You can even create a design code so that you/ your local community will be happy with the eventual build.
We have been working on design codes with two landowners. With the first (an application for six self-build plots), we have had a successful pre-application. The planners thought it was the best design code they have ever seen. On recommendation from the council we are now embarking on an outline planning application. To create self-build plots, it is usual for the landowner to submit a pre-application and an outline planning application.
