Ted, I’m someone who’s interested in their own single plot and I’m sure I am not alone. If the UK Self-Build market is to catch up with the rest of Europe wouldn’t having some form of co-ordinating organisation that brings all these individuals together be of some use (or does this already exist)?

Have any developers/enab lers really shown much interest in these sites. The process of bidding is (apparently) quite complex and not well suited to smaller firms or community groups. Has anyone out there tried buying plots or land from the HCA? What's been your experience?
