plot was set up by bloc to undertake self-build infrastructure development by breaking down the barriers to people who are interested in custom and self-build opportunities. Over 30% of UK adults are interested in building their own home and self and custom build adds to diversity of choice and housing delivery options creating social value. Plot works with landowners to:
- Structure Custom Build Projects
- Offer a Custom Build Service
- Provide Serviced Plots
- Provide Plots with Planning Approval
- Provide Professional Services
- Provide Financial Information
This new way of delivering housing makes schemes more viable and fundable whilst providing a flexible housing design to the exact needs of buyers.
The size of the market is significant and each council have now been set targets by the National Planning Policy Framework to provide land for people wishing to build their own homes.
We have developed an efficient way of delivering custom built housing and are now taking this forward across the UK.
Plot has delivered the first UK commercial self/custom build project including houses in a terrace and refurbished stone workshops. Plot worked with h20 Urban and Buildstore to overcome the hurdles presented by a self-build that is connected to adjoining houses in this stunning location in Lancaster leading to an award-winning development.
Custom build terraces are now an option for our landowner partners and can increase the site density providing better value for the self-builder and landowner alike.
A partnership with landowner Harworth Estates (property arm of UK Coal) and with funding from Homes England to facilitate a self-build community in Co Durham.
