Affordable Serviced Plots Enabled by City of York Council

Living in an urban area can often alienate those who wish to create their own custom build home from actually being able to do so.

One of the main reasons for this is because land values are high. This can price many out of being able to fund both the plot price and the build costs to be able to create their preferred new home.

 

City of York Council has proven to be very proactive in their pursuit of a diversified housing market within the city limits. Custom Build Solutions is currently providing varying levels of consultancy across three key strategies, which form part of an overarching programme to continually provide custom and self-build opportunities to residents at an affordable price.

 

The first scheme to reach the market is at Lowfield Green where six serviced plots are being enabled by the local authority. This is part of a larger development which also comprises of a community led co-housing project by YorSpace.

 

Each plot will benefit from being fully serviced as part of the main infrastructure. Buyers will be supported through the sales process by expert Project Consultant’s from Custom Build Homes, who have been appointed as sole selling agents for the six plots.

 

Each buyer will have the opportunity to appoint their own design, construction and project management professionals. Their consumer finance solutions will be catered for by BuildStore Mortgage Services, who have created a panel of mortgage lenders who have pledged support for this innovative scheme.

 

The custom and self-build team at City of York Council have been proactive and produced a design code for each plot which will ensure there is a sense of collective cohesion across the six plots. This will allow freedom of design expression and individuality which will ensure each home is as buyers wish it to be.

 

All plots will be available for purchase soon via the Custom Build Homes PlotStore.
