Description

Training for planning, housing & built-environment professionals, in association with Trowers & Hamlins

The Custom and Self Build housing sector is growing fast, with over 40,000 people now registered on local authority Self-build and Custom housebuilding registers. More and more projects and initiatives are coming forward in response to primary legislation, Government planning policy and related guidance. Together these set the framework for enabling the provision of permissioned serviced building plots to meet local demand. But a lot of practical delivery questions remain.

Secure your place now for this first, focused, training event of its kind to get underneath the delivery issues of the ‘Right to Build’ and help you with your project or initiative.

Please note that this training event can contribute to your CPD requirements if you are a member of the RTPI

Aim of the event: Planning for opportunities to meet demand from people wishing to commission or build their own homes is now a key part of delivering a sufficient supply of homes and the drive to diversify our housing market. This training session comprehensively covers the implementation of the ‘Right to Build’ legislation set out in the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 and the revised National Planning Policy Framework. It also addresses how Custom and Self Build housing can be effectively delivered in this context, focussing on four key topics. More detail below.

Through a combination of expert trainer presentations and knowledge-sharing between delegates, attendees will:

  • Learn more about the key parts of the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding legislation, how local authorities are applying it and the scope of their duties and powers. Emerging practice on Self-build and Custom housebuilding registers will be addressed and relevant aspects of revised national planning policy, including how it can deliver affordable housing
  • Better understand how to assess the demand for Self Build and Custom housebuilding to inform local plan policies and support project delivery
  • Learn about how Design Codes, plot passports and Local Development Orders can be used effectively to support Custom and Self Build housing projects on larger sites, learning from the UK’s biggest project to date
  • Gain insight into effective use of planning conditions and obligations to secure the timely delivery of Self Build and Custom housebuilding on sites.
