The Right to Build Task force was established in 2017 to support local authorities, community groups and other organisations as they work to increase the delivery of custom and self-build projects. Originally funded by the Nationwide Foundation, we are now part-funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. The Task Force was set up by the National Custom and Self Build Association, although it works at arms-length from NaCSBA.
We engage with councils across England and in the past year have worked with around 60 Local Planning Authorities. Supported by a panel of expert advisors, our focus is on ensuring custom and self-build statutory duties are carried out efficiently and, ultimately, delivering more high quality and affordable custom and self-build homes.
