Warwick District Council is undertaking an assessment of the level of demand for self-build and custom build housing development in the area.

Self and custom build have been defined as:

  • Self-build - projects where individuals or groups directly organise the design and construction of their new home(s)
  • Custom build – project where individuals or groups work with a specialist developer to help deliver their new home(s)

If you are interested in the idea of building your own home, the council is asking you to take part in this process, which will help it to develop housing and planning policies to support the kind of self and custom build projects that would be most appropriate for this area.

General information:

  • You will only be eligible for entry in the register if you are:
    • Aged 18 or over;
    • A British citizen, a national of an EEA state other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland; and
    • Have paid the relevant fees set by Warwick District Council
    • Seeking (either alone or with others) to acquire a serviced plot of land within Warwick District to build a house to occupy as your sole or main residence.
  • For part 1 entry, applicants are required to meet the basic eligibility and local connection test. For part 2 entry, applicants who only meet the basic eligibility criteria will be eligible.
  • Applicants are required to evidence how they meet the local connection test. Failure to provide some or all of the required information will delay the process of your application for entry onto Part 1.
  • If you are a couple or there are two or more members in your household, then please only submit one form. The named person will become the lead contact whose details will appear on the register.
  • If you are an association of two or more members, please only submit one form. The named person will become the lead contact and whose details will appear on the register.
  • Entries on the register will be removed after the initial 12-month registration period if:
    • applicant no longer meets the eligibility and local connection criteria
    • applicant has acquired a plot for self-build and is no longer seeking land
    • applicant fails to pay the required fee
  • At this stage, you are not making any commitment – the council is just trying to find out how much local demand there is for self-build housing.
  • In preparing this register, the council are making no commitment to provide self-build or custom build plots.
  • In submitting this form, you are agreeing that the council can use the data you provide to understand the demand for custom build and self-build housing.
  • Personal details included on the register will not be made public, but anonymised headline data extracted from it may be published (i.e. overall numbers of registered entries for various categories, geographical areas of interest, types of housing sought etc.).
  • Your information as submitted will be used by the council for strategic planning, information and statistical purposes only.
