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.

Right to Build Expo brings together all the players you need to meet and hear from to kick start your own Right to Build success story. From politics and planning to practice and delivery it bridges the gap between those with profound custom and self build experience and groups who still need to get there.

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.

After a networking lunch, you’ll have the opportunity to book an individual appointment with experts relevant to you in a market forum session.

Choose from a series of masterclasses which drill into the detail of viability considerations, finance and mortgage availability, how you can implement Right to Build, facilitate building plots and enable community-led custom and self build housing.

Confirmed speakers so far:

Alok Sharma MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning

Richard Bacon MP, Right to Build Task Force Ambassador and Chair of APPG for Self Build Custom and Community Housebuilding and Placemaking

Michael Holmes, Chair of NaCSBA

Mario Wolf, Director of Right To Build Task Force


Come to one or both parts of our expo which will focus on:

  • The potential of Custom and Self Build housing and the work of the new Right to Build Task Force, including a special insight into the highly successful Nieuw Leyden project.
  • The delivery of Custom and Self Build housing through a series of workshops, including available funding and the operation of the Right to Build in practice.


There will also be an opportunity to visit the UK’s largest Council-led self build project at Graven Hill; take part in our ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions and, if you are a local councillor, participate in a special session with Richard Bacon to discuss the benefits and opportunities of custom and self build housing for local communities.

Sign up for your place at the Right to Build Expo now to 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.

This Right to Build Expo is the first in a series of regionally-focussed Task Force events which will run nationally between 2017 and 2019.

We expect demand to outstrip availability of the limited spaces on offer. Register for a place while you still can!
