1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q40. Are there any other options for how the Local Plan can deliver self-build and custom housing schemes?

Self-Build Policy – to encourage the provision of self-build plots, the council should consider publishing the register so that on small sites builders can identify individuals or groups who want to self-build. This would open new options for supporting their development financing. For larger schemes, say over 10 units, NSC should (subject to viability) set a target for provision of serviced plots similar to that for affordable housing.

We welcome the principle of requiring a proportion of self-build plots on residential schemes of a certain size.

Many people that are interested in self-build as a housing option are looking for something that is different and unique to the type of housing that is typically delivered on larger allocated sites. As such, co-locating parcels of self-build within wider developments is not necessarily the most feasible way of meeting any demand that exists.

I’ve note this proposal and the reference to the relevant Act. While I appreciate the background, I suspect that a requirement for self-build plots to be included in larger residential schemes would create difficulties.

Without knowing the number on the current register for self-build it is difficult to offer options.

Support the identification of additional sites specifically for self-build housing, however we do not support the requirement for a proportion of self-build plots on other residential allocations.
