Local Authorities

Services to Local Authorities

With the Right to Build legislation coming into force, local authorities now have a direct responsibility to create opportunities for self and custom build homes. This presents a huge opportunity: through aligning this policy with other policy requirements and aspirations of your local authority we can assist you in meeting your targets and aspirations in a way that is both cost-effective and delivers delight to your electorate.

We offer the following support:

  1. Feasibility studies: Assessing constraints and opportunities for meeting the Right to Build legislation, developing a strategy for implementation that is aligned with all your policy aspirations.
  2. Implementation: Provision of consultancy and training, to assist with the implementation of the developed strategy.
  3. Demand assessment: Advice on how best to assess the demand for self and custom build homes.
  4. Presentations: Present to the people in your local authority to let them know about the opportunity you wish to provide and to enthuse them.
  5. Training: For self-build groups or individuals looking to join a self or custom build community project.
  6. Provider: We can also be a provider for a sustainable community self-build project in your local authority.

For further details please see both our report for local authorities and response to the Bristol Local Plan Review which explain the opportunity and possible policy solutions.
