Devon Rural Housing Partnership Self-build in Torridge

Torridge District Council is looking to establish how much interest there is in Self Build housing across the District.  This initiative comes as a result of the new Self Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 which requires local authorities to keep a register of persons interested in self or custom-build housing.   

There is more information about this project at:

http://www.Torridge.gov.uk/selfbuild where the register of interest and site register forms can be completed, or for an informal discussion, please do not hesitate to contact Devon Rural Housing Partnership on 01392 248919 or email:janice@devncommunities.org.uk
