The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015

Headline demand data

National planning policy guidance encourages authorities to publish headline data on the demand for self-build and custom housebuilding, as revealed by their register and other sources. This can support development opportunities for self-build and custom housebuilding by increasing awareness among landowners, builders, and developers of the level and nature of demand for self-build and custom housebuilding in the local area.
