1. Join our self build and custom build register
If you are interested in a self build or custom build home, you can join our register.
We provide information about available plots and opportunities to the people on our register.
To join the register, you will need:
- your name, address and contact details
when you are hoping to start your project
where in the Chelmsford area you want to build
why you want to build your own home
details about the people in your household
the number of bedrooms your home would include, and the type of property it would be
your preferred tenure for your home
your average yearly household income
your current level of savings
Once we receive your registration, we will add you to the register and start sending you relevant information.
Self Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015
This government act requires us to maintain the register for those interested in building their own homes.
It also requires us to grant enough planning permissions to meet the needs the register identifies. Our new Local Plan includes a policy about self and custom build housing.
