Funding boost for aspiring self builders

Mark Prisk MP, Dr Paul Chatterton, Kevin McCloud and David Curtis (Homes and Communities Agency).

28 March 2013

Housing Minister Mark Prisk today announced a comprehensive range of measures designed to help people aspiring to build their own homes to get their projects off the ground.

On a visit to a self build cohousing project in Leeds, the Minister said he will be relaxing the rules for support funding under the Community Right to Build, to help even more community groups to bring forward and develop their projects.

I agree with David. It is hard to find the right plot, but it is even harder to gain finance for the build especially if you are self-employed.

As an aspiring self builder, why is this still for self build groups only?

I would like some assistance to get my project off the ground as well, look after individuals and that helps groups by default as well!
