Is anything happening regarding the Right to Build in Wales? I'd appreciate any information regarding our question.

I will watch the results of this bill with baited breath. I wrote to North Dorset District Council regarding what self build related measures they planned on incorporating into the local development framework. I was basically told none, and was only told that after repeated calls to discuss the matter with them.

This country has always favoured mass housing development, and I do not see an Australian style ethos to housing coming along any time soon.
