  • Gravesham Self-Build and Custom Building Register Open

    The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 requires certain public authorities, including Local Authorities, to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who are seeking to acquire serviced plots of land for self-build and custom housebuilding projects in the Local Authority’s area. A serviced plot is defined as a plot of land which has access to a public highway; and has connections for electricity, water and waste water. There is a duty placed on the Council to have regard to the register when carrying out its planning, housing, land disposal and regeneration functions. There is also a duty on other public bodies, who may have responsibility for such functions, to have regard to the register. The register will provide valuable information on the demand for self-build and custom house building in Gravesham and form a key part of the evidence base of the demand for this type of housing.
