Research Paper: Self Build and Custom Build Housing

This research paper by Three Dragons examines the growing momentum behind self build and custom build housing in the UK since the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act was enacted in April 2016.

The paper found that self build is losing its image as a product for older better off households who can afford the 'luxury' of designing their own home.

It reviews the process of 11 local authorities established as vanguards in 2014 and looks at the future issues that may need to be tackled.
