Starting your self build after gaining planning permission

Once you've been granted planning permission, the first thing to do, of course, is celebrate! But now the next part of your self-build journey begins. In this free course, our self-build experts will take you through everything you need to consider before you break ground.

In this presentation at the Self Build Show Centre, we will take you through a wide variety of things you will need to do, from how to finish up your house design, organising health and safety for your site, and how to begin site investigations. This course is essential to understand where you are right now, and what work lies ahead as you set to work building your own home!
