NaCSBA welcomes the announcement in yesterday’s Queens Speech about progressing the Right to Build, which enables people wanting to build their own home to request a building plot from their local authority.

This is in effect the flesh on the bones of Richard Bacon’s Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Bill (now Act) which was given Royal Assent in April. We anticipate the new Bill will provide much more detail on how the Right to Build will work in reality, drawing on the findings of the work carried out by the 11 vanguard local authorities already running the trials. If it works, it could be the first steps in creating the biggest revolution in the UK housing market in the past 60 years.
