Need-a-Plot

If you are keen to get your self build underway the first thing to do is to highlight that you are looking for a building plot. The Self Build Portal's 'Need-a-Plot' tool will enable thousands of people to see a 'Need-a-Plot noticeboard' placed by you, in any area that you desire. Its also a great way of people teaming up to buy larger sites that can be split into individual plots. It's free - so give it a go! To find out what's involved click here »

Do you have land for sale?

You might not Need-a-Plot but instead have a building plot for sale - there are thousands of people who might need exactly what you have. If you have land for sale, scour the map below to see if there is a need for land matching what you hold. Once you find a suitable match, simply click on the noticeboard, make contact and offer up!
