Self building in Trafford

If you are interested in self or custom building a property in Trafford, the self and custom build register can help you.

The register will give us an indication of the level of demand for self/custom build in the borough and will help us to identify suitable sites for development.

Self build is where you are directly involved in organising the design and construction of your new property. Custom build usually involves working with a specialist developer.

By completing this form and providing information about your intentions and your current circumstances, we will be able to let you know if a suitable site for your requirement becomes available.

To be eligible for the register you must be aged 18 or over and a British citizen, a national of a European Economic Area state or a national of Switzerland.

You can also find useful information on the Which? how to build your own home guide (external link).

Complete the self build registration form to join the register.

Or print and post the completed form to:

We want to be sure that you remain happy that we can hold your data for the purpose laid out above. Once we have received your completed form, your details will be entered and stored on the Trafford Council Self and Custom Build Register.
