Under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 as amended, Clackmannanshire Council are required to prepare and maintain a list of people who have registered interest with the authority with the intention of acquiring land in the authority's area for self-build housing.
This list is available on request and will be published and updated annually on our website.
Self-build housing is where an individual (whether acting alone or with other individuals) commissions or is personally involved in the design and construction of a dwelling that is intended to be the individual’s main residence once it is built.
The building process can be project managed with sub-contractors or use one contractor for a turn key solution.
We want to support the delivery of more high quality, affordable and sustainable homes in the right locations, providing choice across tenures that meet the diverse housing needs of people and communities.
Good quality homes should be at the heart of great places and contribute to strengthening the health and wellbeing communities. We want to ensure the provision of land in the right locations to accommodate future need and demand for new homes, supported by the appropriate infrastructure.
To help tackle climate change, we will need more energy efficient, net zero emissions homes, supporting a greener, fairer and more inclusive wellbeing economy and community wealth building, tackling both fuel and child poverty.
The National Planning Framework (NPF4) sets out:
Understanding the demand for self-provided housing is important for both the Council’s plan-making and decision-taking. The self-build list will be monitored alongside broader housing market data and help to inform policies and proposals in the LDP.
It will improve our understanding of the level of demand for self-build plots, the locations where plots are being sought and the types of house that people would like to build. Registration does not however guarantee that suitable plots will be identified, or become available.
To ensure the information is up to date, the list will initially be updated every 2 years, after which time the Council will contact those on the list to check if they wish to remain on it, or alter any details held.
Should anyone wish their details to be removed at any other point (ie no longer requiring a self-build plot), they should contact the Council to request this.
Under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 as amended, the Council, as the planning authority, are to publish the list in such manner as they consider appropriate. The Clackmannanshire list will be accessible through the Council’s Planning webpages.
In line with data protection, personal details, other than names, will be removed before the list is published or updated online.
If you wish to be included on the list please complete the Self-Build Registration Form.
