Self-build housing in North Devon and Torridge

We are working with Torridge District Council to find out how much interest there is in self-build housing across northern Devon.

To do this we are required to maintain a register of individuals and groups of individuals who want to build or have their own home built. In addition to this we are inviting landowners and communities to identify sites within or adjoining towns, villages and rural settlements, which may be suitable for self-build housing.

In the future, the register may be used to try and match those with an interest in starting a self-build project with landowners who might have suitable plots of land available for housing.

Any proposal for self-build housing will need a formal planning application and will be subject to the relevant policies set out within the development plan for the area.

Additional information on self-build homes is available through the Self-Build Portal which provides encouragement and advice to people who want to build their own home.
