Key information

The Self Build Wales scheme has been established by the Welsh Government to help remove the barriers and uncertainty that prevent people in Wales from building their own homes. 

In doing so, underdeveloped or underused land will be transformed into suitable plots for new self-build and custom-build homes.

Plots will have priorities which can be viewed on the individual 'plot passport' pages, but the scheme is designed to suit as many needs as possible and is open to eveyone in Wales.

Pre-agreed designs are available to choose from on the plot passport page.

Designs range in size and cost from 2 bedrooms up to 5 bedrooms.

Energy efficiency will be a key priority for every plot.
