AUTHOR: GRAHAM TAYLOR

Custom Build Homes (CBH) is pleased to announce it will be working closely with Tetlow King Planning (TKP) to drive forward its ambitious growth plans to lead the delivery of large scale custom build housing projects across the country.

TKP will act as the preferred planning consultancy for CBH working closely with its growing network of designers and construction affiliates to provide professional planning advice to its clients. 

Mario Wolf, Director of Planning and Strategic Engagement at CBH, said: “We have a growing client base nationally and firmly believe that by working closely with a specialist planning consultancy like TKP, we will be in a strong position to service the growing demand for our enabling service.

“Our mission to lead custom housebuilding in the UK by providing people with the opportunity to purchase and create their own homes at scale is underway. We are enabling high quality, custom build, homes on large and small housing sites, to create beautifully designed places, irrespective of tenure, offering greater choice to consumers and inspiring many more people to create their own homes.

“The custom build housing sector in on the verge of an imminent explosion in activity with more and more sites coming forward at scale and increasing interest from landowners to include customisable housing in their projects. We need to convert these opportunities into planning permissions to unlock the potential of this growing market.

“TKP has become a leading planning consultancy supporting the Custom and Self-Build development sector providing professional advice where it is needed most. With a challenging national planning reform agenda ahead, we are delighted to have them support us in our programme of work,” he added.

Andy Moger, Associate Director at TKP who is also represented on the Government supported Right to Build Task Force and has been working with CBH on several projects to date, said: “Tetlow King are delighted to partner with Custom Build Homes in this exciting and rapidly expanding sector of the housing market. The Government has consistently supported the growth of self and custom-build housing since the 2011 Housing Strategy for England and this support is now firmly entrenched in both the National Planning Policy Framework and the Planning Practice Guidance. 

“A growing number of appeal decisions have also highlighted the importance of custom and self-build development, several of which have been as a result of expert witness evidence at inquiry by Tetlow King Planning. 

We look forward to a fruitful working relationship with Custom Build Homes and the delivery of successful self and custom build developments to address the latent market demand.”
