Register your interest in a self-build or custom home
The Canterbury self-build register
As part of the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act we must keep a register of people interested in building their own home. There is a fee of £30 a year to be on this register.
We use the register to find out more about the demand for self-build and custom plots in the district. We publish information about self-build each year in our Authority Monitoring Report.
Local connection test
The self-build register is in two parts. People with a local connection to Canterbury district go on part one, everyone else goes on part two.
The number of people on part one of the register influences how many self and custom build plots we need to grant planning permission for.
The number of people on part two of the register influences wider policy decisions.
