The Government has demonstrated through recent changes to the planning system that it is an enthusiastic supporter of the custom and self-build sector. There is now recognition within national planning guidance of the growing demand from the self-build sector for improved access to opportunities to undertake self-build projects, which will include conversion of existing buildings and structures, often exhibiting innovative and ground-breaking design solutions.

Over recent years a growing number of examples from across the UK of high quality conversions have captured the public imagination and inspired more and more people to become involved in realising their own ‘Grand Design’ ambitions. One-off, bespoke solutions are now increasingly gaining planning consent, even in areas often constrained by planning policy. Through the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015, and more recently the Housing White Paper, the Government recognises that custom build can be an affordable way to home ownership that provides an opportunity to own a bespoke, sustainably designed and high quality home.

National planning guidance encourages outstanding and innovative design and cautions local planning authorities against stifling innovation, originality and initiative. National and local planning policies also provide support for sympathetic, sustainable rural tourism enterprises as well as general support for the sustainable growth and expansion of all types of business and enterprise in rural areas, including through the conversion of existing buildings.

Interested parties should read the legal pack for further information relating to easements and overages, for example, that may be applicable to the site.
