Self-Build Housing

Statistics

To help improve self and custom build opportunities we will provide up to date information that may be of use to people interested.

As well as providing the statistics below, we will also:

  • send out an email when planning permission is granted for self-build and custom build homes 
  • send an email annually for updates to the current register

Statistics

All statistics are correct as of the end of October 2020.

Each year the Council prepares a Monitoring Report. This reports progress on the Island Plan and the performance of policies and objectives within its development plan documents.
