Regarding
Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Register
Request

I would like to know how many people are on the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Register at Eden District Council. I would also like to know how many self-build houses (that meet the legal definition of self-build and custom housebuilding in the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015) have been approved in the district since 31 October 2016? Please exclude normal planning applications for new build dwellings even on single plots unless the approval contained either a planning condition or a planning obligation requiring a self-build or custom-build house to be built on the site that accords with the statutory definition.

Our response

Response

We publish the amount of people on the self-build register on our website (updated annually in November). Find the self-build and custom build housing register here.

There are currently 75 people listed on the self-build register at Eden District Council.

There have been no applications that have been approved in the district since 31 October 2016 that meet the legal definition of self-build and custom housebuilding in the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015.
