Planning and regeneration Apply to be added to the self-build or custom house building register

If you plan to build your own home in Manchester, apply here to be added to our self-build and custom house building register.

This is a register of people or groups (associations) who want serviced plots of land in Manchester for self-build and custom house building projects.

The register lets us know the level of demand for these plots when writing planning policy and in aiming to grant planning permission for a sufficient number of suitable plots.

To go on the register you must be 18 or over, and:

  • a UK citizen; or
  • a citizen of a country in the European Economic Area (EEA); or
  • a Swiss citizen.

You can check which countries are in the EEA at www.gov.uk/eu-eea.

Associations of people can go on the register, but everyone in the association must meet these rules.

If you are one of several adults planning to build a shared home then you can pick one person to apply as an individual or apply together as an association.
