Use this form to apply to go on the Self-build and Custom-house building register for the Eden area of Westmorland and Furness.

Westmorland and Furness Council recognises the benefits of self-build and custom house building in meeting the housing needs of its residents. By submitting this form, you are applying to be entered onto the Self-build and Custom House Building Register to record your interest in acquiring a serviced plot of land to build a house to occupy as your sole or main residence in the Eden area. The Self-build and Custom House Building Register will also provide an indication of demand for self and custom-build in our area that can be used when developing housing and planning policies.

The Council will publish aggregated data from the register on an annual basis, but personal information will not be disclosed to any third party and any personal information provided will be used by us solely for the purpose of the Self-build and Custom House Building Register.
