Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding

South Tyneside Council recognises the desire for people to build their own homes, and this is supported through our adopted Local Plan

There are a number of different potential routes to building your own home (see the national Self Build Portal for more information):

  • self-build one-off home
  • contractor-built one-off home
  • kit home
  • independent community collaboration
  • supported community self-build group
  • developer-built one-off home
  • developer-led group project
