What is the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Register?
The Council maintains a register of people and groups who want to buy serviced plots of land in Bexley to build homes to live in as their main or only residence.
The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Register provides information on the demand for self-build and custom housebuilding in the borough. The Council must consider this information when preparing local planning policy, determining planning applications, and exercising its housing, regeneration and land disposal functions.
The Register is not published. Key data will be published in accordance with the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding (Register) Regulations 2016 and anonymised information will be included in the Council's annual Authority Monitoring Report. The personal information that you enter will be held securely by the London Borough of Bexley.

What happens next?
The Council will consider your application for entry onto the register and notify you in writing. You can contact us at any time to update or remove your entry.
