30 October was a day of celebration at Graven Hill, with the National Custom and Self Build Association (NaCSBA) launching Right to Build Day on site.
The aim of the Day is to track local authority activity surrounding the Right to Build legislation and encourage a more innovative approach to housing in the UK.
What is Right to Build?
- Everyone in England is entitled to sign up to their local Right to Build register
- Under the legislation, local authorities in England must maintain a register of people who would like to build their own home, either through custom building, self-building or community-led housing
- People can sign up as individuals or groups who want to build together
- To sign up, visit NaCSBA’s Right to Build Portal
To tie in with Right to Build Day, Richard Bacon, MP and Right to Build Task Force Ambassador, came along to Graven Hill to open our new Education House.
A collaboration with Build It magazine, the House offers anyone interested in building their own home the opportunity to talk face-to-face with the experts and pick up handy skills and insight to help them on their self-build journey.
Interested in popping by?
The Education House is an interactive experience that will no doubt prove invaluable to anyone interested in building their own home. Visitors will be able to learn about every aspect of self-building, from product choice and design to specific construction methods.
The House is also set to become the new site of our Marketing Suite, giving people the opportunity to gain inspiration, view plot availability and discuss options with the sales team all in one place – why not subscribe to our newsletter for updates?
