The Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on councils to keep a register of eligible individuals and groups who wish to self-build.

The register will help inform the council of the level of demand for self build and custom plots in Wolverhampton and enable the council to develop a strategy for matching people to plots in their area.

About Custom and Self Build Projects

  • Individual custom build - an individual purchases a plot of land and builds a home to live in. They may do some or all of the build themselves, or employ a builder, architect and project manager to oversee the construction process.
  • Group custom build - a group comes together to design and develop a custom build housing development which they then live in. They may build this themselves or with help from a developer to manage the project.
  • Developer led build - a developer divides a larger site into individual plots and provides a design and build service to purchasers. This gives people a chance to tailor existing house designs to suit their own preferences and need.

If you are considering undertaking a custom build project either as an individual or as part of a group, please complete the online registration form below.

By signing up to the register you will help us find out more about the demand for custom self-build plots in Wolverhampton, where people would like their plot to be and the type of house they would like to build. Registration does not, however, guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available for purchase.

Self Build Plots

The list of self-build plots in the Downloads section lists sites with capacity for one dwelling which had an outline or full planning permission as of March 2019 together with information on the planning application reference. 

It is recommended that you search on Google the desired address for any estate agent or sales details.
