Waverley Borough Council has introduced a register for individuals and groups who are interested in meeting their housing needs by creating their own home through a self build project.

Self build and custom build housing typically involves properties that are either commissioned or built by individuals or community groups as their main homes.

The register will enable the Council to gather evidence to see if there is a demand for this type of development within the borough.

The Waverley Self Build Register is open to individuals over the age of 18 and to community groups who are interested in meeting their housing need through the self build models. Homes can be delivered for both open market and affordable tenures.

Each person registering must be either a British citizen, a national of an EEA State other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland.

Self build homes are subject to the same requirement for planning permission as other homes.
