Custom and Self Build Market Report 2022

NaCSBA’s Custom and Self Build Market Report is an invaluable resource for anyone operating in the custom and self build sector, and is the first publication of this new annual resource. It contains data that reflects the aspirations of both the general public, those people already aware of – and interested in – the route, and also those people who have built already. Together this forms a robust source of data to support business decisions and applications for sites.

The report is available for free to NaCSBA members as a member benefit, and is also available to purchase as a hard and digital copy for £295 p+p.

Report structure

Made up of three main sections, the report gives an overview of government support, such as legislation, policy and more, to date, followed by market insight from our five sponsors. This is then followed by the data section, starting with the Right to Build figures and analysis for the period 2016-2020 (2020-21 figures were not available at time of press).
