1. Obtaining a self-build plot in East Devon

There are currently no specific policies in East Devon that allow for self-build in areas that would not otherwise be granted planning permission for housing.  Please check whether there is a valid planning permission before purchasing a plot.

A useful blog that gives general advice on acquiring land for self-build can be found on the Government’s Planning Portal at Planning permission and acquiring land for self-build Planning Portal Blog.
