Building more and better-quality homes is vital to meeting the needs of current and future generations. Communities are more comfortable with development when it creates the homes people want in the places they want to live.
Is it true that self-builds take years to complete, cost a fortune and end up as sprawling, wacky or unattractive? Not many people understand the extent to which custom and self-build can deliver more homes while providing a host of other benefits.
Join us to learn about the benefits, including boosting local economies, improved sustainability, reduced churn in communities and fewer objections to the development, along with tools for success and the next steps for local councils to understand how self and custom build could make a positive difference to their communities.
Speakers: Hugo Davies architect and founding member of Broadhempston Community Land Trust Affordable Self-build Housing Project and Jeremy Christophers, Right to Build Task Force expert and former leader of Teignbridge District Council
