Online forms: Self-build register of interest

You can use this form to register your interest in building your own home or working with builders.


You purchase land and build your own house on a single plot. You may build the house yourself or employ a builder, architect and, in some cases, a project manager to oversee the build.

Collective custom build

You're part of a group who as a body wish to design and develop a custom build housing development which the group then live in. The group may build this yourselves or with help from a developer to manage the project.

Developer led custom build

A developer divides a larger site into individual plots and provides a design and build service to purchasers. This gives you a chance to customise existing house designs to suit your needs.


You and a group of people choose to live in a development where each has their own house, but there is also a communal house and shared facilities. A community ethos is at the heart of this type of housing.

Next steps

The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 places a duty on local authorities to keep a register of individuals and associations of individuals who have expressed an interest in acquiring land for self-build and custom-build projects.

We want to make it easier for people in Warrington to build their own homes. We are currently assessing the demand for custom-build in the town by creating and publicising a register of interested individuals and groups.

If you are interested in building your own home and would like to be kept up to date with the latest news please sign up to our self-build register below.

By signing up, you will help us find out more about the number and types of houses people would like to build in Warrington. By signing up to the register, we can't guarantee that we'll be able to provide a plot that meets your specifications, however we'll do everything we can to support you.

As well as registering with us you may also find the National Custom and Self-build Association web site at  useful.

To use this form you will need to tell us...

  • Your name and address
  • Where you want to build
  • Type of building you wish to build, including number of bedrooms
