Self Build Homes - Searching for a place to build or need help getting started?

We offer expert planning advice to self-builders and housebuilders, including help with planning applications.

With an unrivalled success rate in securing planning permission for our self-builder clients and inspired by our own self-builds and 30+ years of award-winning housebuilding experience, we have shaped our planning and design services to offer self-builders the best possible start on their self-build journey.

Fytche-Taylor can help with all stages of your self-build project, including:

  • Site appraisals – could the site you’ve seen get planning permission?
  • Full project support – Architectural Design, Plans, Planning Applications.
  • Construction support – Tender packs, costing estimates and Building Regulation compliance.

Making sure you receive the best planning advice in the earliest stages can often prove critical to the success of your self-build journey (and can be just as important to a renovation, conversion or extensions too!). Scoping a site properly and obtaining accurate advice will save you both time and money in the long run, by ensuring that you don't invest in a site that can't be developed and then getting your plans right the first time around.

Without planning permission, you simply don’t have a viable project. Add that to the uncertainty of whether a plot will be suitable and the complex process required to gain consent to start building your dream self-build home and the whole process can quickly start to feel quite daunting.  Let us manage the planning process for you!

Why choose Fytche-Taylor to help with your self-build project?

Partnering with Fytche-Taylor will help make the planning process as a simple as possible for you, whether you need assistance in finding available plots, with obtaining the necessary planning permissions or simply an open and honest appraisal of the likelihood of gaining planning permission on a site you have found.

We also know what you are going through - we have over 30 years of housebuilding experience ourselves, so our expert advice is based on comprehensive knowledge of the systems, planning policies and likely issues that need to be addressed to give your next build project the best possible start.

I had the privilege of working with the team at Fytche-Taylor on a particularly challenging project that required not only a deep understanding of planning laws but also a keen insight into historical precedents. Their expertise in navigating the intricate maze of legal constraints was nothing short of impressive.

Building Plots for self and custom build in Lincoln Lincolnshire and the East Midlands including sites with planning permission

Matching self-builders and developers with the perfect plots

At Fytche-Taylor our client base includes landowners from across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.  

Our Plot Finder service is designed to assist local housebuilders and anybody starting to plan their own self-build or custom build home to find their perfect development site. 

We are continuously working on different development projects and often have plots available, or that will shortly be released, with outline or full planning permission in place. 

During the last few years the surge in the popularity of self-build has been boosted by changes to financing and planning rules.  In this time we have successfully helped a growing number of clients realise their self-build dreams, working with them to carefully understand their unique requirements and ideas to help formulate a bespoke design.  In some cases, clients have come to use with sketch plans, or even full architectural drawings too - but whatever stage the self-build journey you are at, our experienced team would love to be part of this adventure with you to provide the best possible chance of planning success. 

To discuss your project please call 01522 581 383 or email [email protected]
Let's plan something great together!
