Task Force

The Right to Build Task Force has been established by the National Custom and Self Build Association to help Local Authorities, community groups and other organisations across the UK to deliver large, affordable custom and self build projects. Please note, this website is in the process of being retired. Our new Planning Guidance for Custom and Self Build is available with our updated content on our new version of the site.
