The council holds a register for people who are interested in self- build or custom build (see question on how to join that register below) and we are already receiving enquiries regarding the recently secured outline planning permission for the construction of 4 self build plots on land at Sea Lane in Stubbington.
If you are interested in these self-build plots, the frequently asked questions below is a good place to start as this may help answer any initial questions you have. If you would like further information, please email HousingStrategy@fareham.gov.uk.
When will the plots be available to buy?
Although planning permission has now been granted we aren't yet in a position to give an indication on timescales for when the plots will be marketed, as we have to conclude some discussions with Homes England relating to the site. We will also want to provide the access, basic services and demarcate the individual plots before they are marketed.
How will the plots be marketed for sale?
At this stage we are intending for the plots to be marketed on the open market via a local agent. There are no current plans to allocate them, or to apply any specific eligibility criteria. We do, however, expect that we will take into account the ability for the perspective purchasers to proceed with the sale and deliver a self-build property at the site, alongside the value of any offers made.
Will services be provided to the plots?
It is our intention to provide services to the plots (electric, water), to demarcate them and to put the basics of the access/shared drive in place before the plots are marketed.
Will I be notified when the plots are being marketed for sale?
If you are already on the Council's self and custom build register and you've indicated you'd like to know about self-build opportunities in the Borough, then you will be notified when marketing commences for this site.
How much will the plots be sold for?
At this stage we are unable to give an indication of plot prices. This will be guided by the advice of the marketing agent and/or surveyors on behalf of the Council.
You may be able to build your understanding of likely costs/values of self-build plots by researching others that have been marketed or sold in the Fareham area. Recent examples (not by the Council) include some larger plots in Greenaway Lane, Warsash.
