Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Grant
To boost self-build and custom housebuilding in Allerdale, the Council decided to allocate part of its self-build funding towards offering financial assistance to those on Part 1 of its Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Register.
The Council will grant a maximum of £1,800 to eligible individuals to cover the cost of submitting a planning application and paying building control fees. Recipients must use the Council's building control services.
In cases where an association is submitting a planning application on behalf of all members, only one grant will be given. However, all members of an association may apply for a grant to cover their building control fees.
For more information about the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Grant, please view the Guidance document and application form.
