From 1 April 2016 Local Authorities had an obligation to develop Right to Build demand registers for people in their areas that want to commission their own home.
From 31 October 2016 Local Authorities have an obligation to grant planning permission for sufficient shovel ready plots to meet the demand of the Right to Build registers within three years.
Now is the time for those implementing the Right to Build – Local Authorities, landowners and developers – to ensure you maximize the potential of the demand registers and develop the right planning strategies.
