Custom Build Solutions host event in the Cotswolds

A custom and self build housing expo was held to educate and inspire local communities to engage with better forms of development when the opportunity arises...

Local residents, as well as district and parish councillors gathered in The Market House in Minchinhampton last week to hear from Allan Corfield (Ac Architects) and Tom Connor (BuildStore Custom Build) on the emergence of custom build development and the benefits to both prospective homeowners and the local community as a whole. 

 

The event was well attended and each presentation sparked debate from all parties as to what possibility there is for an opportunity such as Long Four Acres in South Norfolk or Graven Hill in Cherwell DC, Oxfordshire happening in or around Stroud - an area already benefitting from community led housing and a rich history of one-off self builds. 

 

Custom Build Homes’ sister brand Custom Build Solutions which works on behalf of those enabling new opportunities for buyers through custom and self build development is engaged with a local landowner based close to the town. A possible development site at Cirencester Road if allocated and permitted could host up to 50 serviced plots for individually designed homes. There will be a great opportunity to increase levels of affordability and include young professionals who currently cannot afford to own a home in the area they’ve grown up in. 

 

Draft plans have been submitted to Stroud DC and the site is currently being considered as part of their Local Plan Review. If you would like to voice your support for this development we would love to hear from you.
