Bromley’s Self-build and custom housebuilding register is divided into two parts:
Part 1 keeps track of local demand for self-build and custom housebuilding which must be met via the grant of sufficient development permissions for serviced plots of land.

Part 2 keeps track of general demand for self-build and custom build, with no requirement to grant sufficient development permissions for serviced plots of land to meet this demand.

Eligibility for Part 1 of the register is dependent on submission of appropriate information required by regulations and to address local eligibility conditions. Bromley has put in place a local eligibility condition requiring applicants to demonstrate a ‘local connection’ to the Borough; this means that you must have been a resident in the borough for a continuous period of five years, up to and including the day of your application for entry in the register(an exception applies to persons in the service, or who have been in recent service of, the regular armed forces of the Crown).

Following receipt of your application we will assess the information you have provided and confirm in writing if you are, or are not, eligible for entry in Part 1 or Part 2 of the register as appropriate. If an application is incomplete or there is insufficient information for it to be assessed, this may result in applications being refused.
