Self-build and community build event

Lancaster City Council is holding an event this summer for people involved in the world of self and custom-build homes.

The event will be held on Thursday, June 20 at The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster and give anyone interested in building or designing their own homes the opportunity to speak to industry experts and other self-builders.

The event starts at 6pm with presentations from an architect, the council’s planning service, a self-builder and Action with Communities who provide community build advice.

There will then be exhibitions and advice from planners, architects, passive, eco and modular house suppliers and builders including Beattie Passive, The Green Build Store,  Hartwyn Eco Build and Simply Modular, The Penrith Building Society, Action for Communities and the Community Land Trust.

To register for the event as a prospective self-builder, please complete and return the self-build register form which can be found at or email with your name and the number of people interested in attending.

If your company provides goods and services which may be of interest to self-builders and would like to exhibit at the event, email
