There is no direct benefit to being on Part 1 of the register for individuals or associations. However, we have a duty to facilitate the provision of enough serviced plots of land to meet the demands of Part 1 applicants within a 3 year period.
Part 1 lists who meets the eligibility criteria and local connection test.
Part 2 lists who meets the eligibility criteria but not the local connection test.
Registration does not guarantee a suitable plot will be found or become available.
New applicants must pay a registration fee of £30.
Each member of an association must pay £30.
Payment is collected on the registration form.
To stay on the register, you need to complete an updated registration form and pay the annual fee of £30 by October 30.
Reminders are sent out in September.
If you don't re-register, you'll be taken off the list. You can re-register again at any time.
The register is used to help us understand local demand for custom build plots and house sizes. It is not a public document.
We will not share identifiable information outside the council without written consent from the person who registered.
