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.

Find out more

Applicants can either apply for an available plot within the Self Build Wales scheme, use their own land to build on, or build on available land they have found.

The scheme is designed to suit as many needs as possible and is open to everyone 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.
