This document invites local planning authorities to express an interest to become Right to Build vanguards to test various approaches to how the Right to Build might be applied in practice.
In order to support our ambition of doubling the size of the custom build sector, and building on the initiatives we have already introduced through our custom build homes programme, the government announced these new measures at Budget 2014:
- consulting on a new Right to Build, giving custom builders a right to a plot from councils
- identifying a small number of councils to act as vanguards to test how the Right to Build model would work in practice
- making available £150 million repayable finance to bring forward up to 10,000 custom build building plots
- looking to extend the Help to Buy equity loan scheme to custom build projects
This document focuses on the second of these measures. We are looking to work with a small number of local planning authorities to test various approaches to how the Right to Build might be applied in practice.
In the document, we set out further details on the Right to Build proposal and how the vanguards programme will operate. It also outlines the support that will be available and how councils can express an interest in participating.
