 We are seeking enthusiastic individuals, families and groups who want to build their own homes.

We have a list of suitable land to develop and a register of individuals and groups interested in building their own homes. We want to see a range of property types taking shape across the District. You may want to specialise in an eco-friendly property, look at “container” housing or consider a timber house kit. We are also encouraging projects of several properties being constructed together by local community groups. Non-traditional house building can be cheaper than traditional construction. Have a look at what best suits your pocket and your aspirations.

There are 2 main types of construction in this concept: -   Custom and Self-Build.

  1. Custom Build— tends to be where you design your home with a specialist developer who then builds it. This can also include the developer building the “shell” up to say a watertight stage for you to then do all the internal work yourself.
  2. Self-Build—tends to be an individual or group completing a majority of the building work from the ground up, sometimes specialists are brought into complete jobs such as electrical or plastering work. 

Cost considerations

There are a lot of things to think about when building your own home!   The options may be intimidating at first glance, but it is actually fairly straightforward when you take all the planning and design factors into consideration.

Planning

Self-building is an adventure dictated by your own constraints. There is no denying that there will be challenges, frustrations and a lot of excitement along the way. We have yet to hear of anybody who has regretted their decision to self-build.

Support websites

Most of the common issues experienced by people building their own home can be avoided by working with an experienced architectural designer and qualified construction contractor. Whatever skills you have and whichever route you follow, building your own home can be an amazing experience.

In North East Derbyshire there are 30 designated conservation areas. It is the quality of the architecture, visual character and historic interest of these areas that makes them special and worthy of conservation. In making the assessment of an area, many factors are considered in determining its character and quality including:

  • The historic layout of property boundaries and thoroughfares.
  • The inter-relationship of buildings and spaces.
  • The mix of building and land use.
  • The architectural quality of individual buildings either grand such as town halls, churches and stately houses or vernacular such as workers cottages, water mills and barns.
  • The composition of building groups such as terraces, shops, farm complexes, almshouses or industrial complexes (such as mills).
  • Vistas into, from, through and around the area under consideration.
  • The interaction of the natural and the built environment.
  • The age and social history of the area and its buildings.
  • The use of materials in buildings, boundaries, paths and open areas.

All of our conservation areas and boundaries can be viewed using the Find My.. mapping feature at the top of this page.

Applications

 

Please note that from 17 January 2018, the Government are introducing an increase of 20% on planning fees. You can read more about the statutory instrument on the Government's legislation website.

 

All development must comply with approved planning policies, unless there are specific material considerations which would indicate otherwise. Publicity is given to applications in accordance with our published procedures, and all representations received are considered and taken account of in the determination process.

Planning Applications can be submitted online through the Planning Portal.

When an application has been made, checks are carried out to ensure that all information required to process the application has been received. If further information is required, the application will be made invalid and further information will be requested from the applicant/agent, e.g. an additional fee or additional plans.

Most planning applications require a location plan and a site plan (also known as a block plan), to be submitted as supporting documents. You can Buy a Plan to support your application from the Planning Portal website.

A Design and Access Statement is now required to be submitted with most Planning Applications. Further guidance on design and access statements can be found via the planning portal.

For guidance on if you need to submit a planning application or not, please down load our Planning Application Guidance document.

Search Planning Applications

Details of all planning applications are held in the Online Planning System where you can find and comment on planning applications that are being considered near you. You can search for applications by property, application reference and even using a map. You can also track an application as it goes through the planning process.

Please note: you must register with us if you want to comment online or track an application.

All personal information provided to North East Derbyshire District Council will be held and treated in confidence in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. It will only be used for the purpose for which it was given, however if you choose to comment on a planning application your name and address will be publicly available as part of the planning process.

Appeals

If your planning application has been turned down, you can appeal to The Planning Inspectorate.

Please see the latest Appeals Register here.

Before you appeal against a decision, you should speak to a Planning Officer to see whether or not an amendment to your original application could resolve the issues.

The time limits in which you need to submit your appeal to the Planning Inspectorate are as follows:

  • Householder applications - the time limit to appeal is 12 weeks from the date of the notice of the decision or determination giving rise to an appeal.
  • In other cases, appeals should be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate within six months of the date of the decision notice giving rise to the appeal.
  • Where we have failed to make a decision, an appeal against non-determination can be submitted up to six months after the expiry of the period we had for dealing with the application.


Where an Enforcement notice has been served on the same, or substantially the same, development the time limits to appeal are:

  • 28 days from the date of the refusal or the expiry of the period which we had to determine the application, where the enforcement notice is served before the application is submitted;
  • 28 days from the date of the refusal or the expiry of the period which we had to determine the application, where the enforcement notice is served before the decision on the application is reached or the determination period has expired; or
  • 28 days from the date the enforcement notice is served, where the enforcement notice is served after the decision or expiry of the period which we had to reach a decision on the application, unless the effect would be to extend the period beyond the usual time limit for cases not involving an enforcement notice, as outlined above.

If you have any further enquiries regarding the information above, please use the contact us details on the right of this page to get in touch.
