Background to Right to Build

All local authorities in England now have a legal duty to prepare and publicise ‘Right to Build’ demand registers for people in their areas that want to commission their own home. They must also grant planning permission for sufficient ‘shovel ready’ plots to meet the demand on their registers within three years.Background to Right to Build All local authorities in England now have a legal duty to prepare and publicise ‘Right to Build’ demand registers for people in their areas that want to commission their own home. They must also grant planning permission for sufficient ‘shovel ready’ plots to meet the demand on their registers within three years. Now is the time for those implementing the Right to Build – local authorities, community groups, landowners and developers – to harness the potential of the new legislative framework and unlock custom and self build housing opportunities in their area.

Who should attend

Local authorities, community groups and individuals, architects, landowners, developers, custom and self-builders and anyone looking to start or progress a custom or self-build project.

Benefits of attending

You will get unrivalled insight into the best way to get started, from the people who have actually done it.
  • Be inspired by panel discussions with leaders of local developments. Get advice on legal, financial, and political practicalities.
  • Hear case studies from local and international custom and self build schemes and particular opportunities for Garden Towns.
The Right to Build Expo will galvanize you and your team with in-depth access to success stories and ‘how-to’s’ from other regions. Get directly connected to expert support from the Task Force and understand how to maximize the full potential of the Right to Build demand registers.

“Excellent – informative and inspirational” – local authority Expo delegate.
