Three districts in Devon have recently become ‘Right to Build Vanguards’ working with the Department for Communities and Local Government to explore the role self-build housing could have in adding to the housing stock.  

Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park Authorities are working in partnership to identify how self-build can work to meet local need in the National Parks and Teignbridge District Council is focusing on progressing its Local Plan requirement that all developments over 20 homes should offer 5% as self-build plots.

Launched W/C 9th December, people are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible to express and interest. If you are local and have a genuine wish to pursue a self-build project or have land available you can register your interest with the appropriate Local Authority using the information below:

Dartmoor National Parks/Selfbuild
