Self-build housing register

There is a new requirement for Local Planning Authorities to prepare and maintain a list of anyone interested in acquiring land for self-build housing across the authority’s area. Self-build housing is where a person commissions or is personally involved in the design and construction of a dwelling intended to be their main home.

Self build flats in Bath Street, Portobello.
Community self-build flats: Bath Street, Portobello.

Registering interest will help us find out more about the demand for self-build across Edinburgh. While registration does not form an obligation for the Council to find or offer land for such purposes, we will use the information from the register to inform future planning policy and guidance.

If you are interested in self-build, you can join our register.
