Self and custom build homes

We have to keep a register of people who are interested in self-build or custom build projects in Harlow.

Self-build projects are defined as those where someone directly organises the design and construction of their own home.

Custom build homes are where you work with a developer as an individual or a group to help deliver your own home.

If you want to build your own home as a self-build or custom build please register your interest.

By registering your interest you will help inform Harlow Council of the level of demand for self-build and custom build plots in Harlow, where people would like their plot to be and the type of house that they would like to build.

We will use the information to explore ways in which it might be possible for people and plots to be brought together.

Registration does not guarantee that we will identify a suitable plot, a plot will become available or that planning permission will be granted for a site.
