Community-Led Housing and the Custom and Self Build Promotion by the Government
2nd September 2021
As many CLH groups commission their builds, they would come under the umbrella of community custom or even self build - (Broadhempston CLT - Devon) and this has been recognised by the self/custom build sector, the individuals also need to be the occupants to qualify. Richard Bacon MP pushed through the legislation and he is very keen on CLH to be an important component of innovative ways of housing delivery, he takes a lot of inspiration from Europe especially The Netherlands and particularly likes COOPs…..he wants scale.
He has been commissioned by the prime minister to deliver a report on how more schemes can come forward, and Richard is now looking for some great examples. See document below.
The local authorities need to be mindful about this way of housing delivery and legislation and statutory duties are placed on all English local authorities.
Every council must keep and promote a register of those who wish to build or commission their own home.
Every council must ensure that they permission enough plots to meet the demand on their registers.
Relevant authorities should use preferences expressed by those on the register to guide its decisions when looking at how to meet its duty.
The first date relevant authorities needed to meet their legal duty was 30 October 2019.
This is what to look out for when discussing Self/custom build
