To ask the Scottish Government what advice it has given to local authorities regarding the Custom and Self Build Scheme launched by Capita and Lloyds Banking Group and whether it will develop a right to build scheme similar to that operating in England.


Answered by Margaret Burgess (10/02/2015):

It is for local authorities to decide whether they would wish to support this scheme in Scotland, taking account of their particular circumstances and priorities. The Scottish Government’s revised guidance to local authorities on the preparation of local housing strategies notes that self and custom build approaches can be viable options for a variety of households across a range of areas, both urban and rural.

There are no current plans to introduce a right to build scheme in Scotland.
