What is self-build?


Self-build is where individuals or groups are involved in creating their own home. Visit the Self Build Portal website to find out more.

What is the self-build register?

It is a scheme for us to help identify people wanting to build or commission their own home in the area.

We're creating a register of people interested in self-build and custom build projects in Wokingham Borough.

This will help us to assess the demand for self and custom build and allow us to develop housing and planning policies.

Am I eligible to go on the self-build register?

Each individual applicant and every member of an association that applies for entry on the register must be:

  • Aged 18 or older
  • A British citizen, a national of a European Economic Area (EEA) State other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland
  • Seeking (either alone or with others) to acquire a serviced plot of land in the authority’s area to build a house to occupy as that individual’s sole or main residence

Register your interest in self-build

We will not pass identifiable information from the register onto anyone without your consent.
