Self Build Housing

The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own home. Self-build housing usually means that you are directly involved in organising the design and construction of your new home. Custom build usually means working with a specialist developer to help you deliver your home.

The Self Build Register will help the Council to assess the demand for self-build housing in Darlington and enable the Council to develop its housing and planning policies to support self and custom build projects in the Borough, as appropriate.

If you would like to register your interest in self-building in Darlington, please complete the registration form. We may contact you again to ask for more information about where you would like your plot to be and the type of house you would like to build. Registration does not however guarantee that a suitable plot will be identified, or become available. We may use the information to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together but we will not pass identifiable information from the Register onto anyone outside the Council without the written consent of the person who registered their details.
