We have a lovely 3.75 acre site that we would love to split up into five or more plots, offering the additional plots to fellow inspired would be self-builders. The sites in, but on the edge of the green belt in Dorset. Major housing development is imminent and close by on either side, with these sites immanently been removed from the greenbelt by the current local Core Strategy to be signed off in 2014. Consultants feel that our site is a natural progression and fit for development, but timing and current bureaucracy renders the site potentially redundant until the next core strategy at the earliest. This plot could be a fantastic opportunity to aspiring self builders and we need the inspiration of the Self Build Portal, NaSBA and central government to help make this and similar dreams a reality and in a sensible time-frame. Keep up the good work.
