Each individual and every member of an association of individuals that applies for entry on the register must be:

  • aged 18 or older
  • a British citizen, a national of a EEA (European Economic Area) State other than the United Kingdom, or a national of Switzerland; and
  • seeking (either alone or with others) to acquire a serviced plot of land in the relevant authority’s area to build a house to occupy as that individual’s sole or main residence.

Further information can be found on the GOV.UK site.

We will not pass identifiable information from the register on to anyone outside the council without the written consent of the person who registered their details.
