Custom Build Homes Welcomes Government’s Custom & Self-Build Review

Custom Build Homes has today (Friday 30 October) welcomed the commitment from the Government to review law on how to make it easier for people to create their own home.

The review into custom build housing has been announced on “Right to Build” day. Councils are further urged to ensure planning permission is granted for suitable plots for local people to build a home to suit their lifestyle.

Commenting on the commitment to examine how effective the Government’s support is for the custom and self-build sector, Custom Build Homes’ Founder Tom Connor said:

“The announcement from the Housing Minister is welcomed as it further demonstrates the Government’s commitment to supporting people’s right to live in a more suitable home.  I hope the review will lead to strengthening policies to ensure more plots which are permitted for custom housebuilding are actually delivered as such.”
