Great news today for Rural Enablers at the Devon Rural Housing Partnership and the Exmoor Rural Housing Project.

Exmoor and Dartmoor National Park Authorities are one of just 11 areas across England and Wales that have been selected to benefit from government funding to help those looking to build their own homes.

Right to Build is designed to help people interested in self-build. The Vanguard project on Exmoor and Dartmoor will explore how local self-builders can be helped while at the same time protecting the important National Park countryside.
