The Local Self Build Register gathers detailed information from people who want to build their own homes in the borough.

By registering, we can collect valuable data on the demand for self-build and custom housebuilding in Enfield. By understanding this demand, it will allow us to develop specific policies for the provision of self-build or custom housing plots in the future.

You can confirm your interest for self-build or custom housing in Enfield by emailing selfbuild@enfield.gov.uk.

Custom build homes

We are working with an organisation called Naked House on a custom build scheme in Enfield. For information on how to join Naked House or updates on the scheme, visit Naked House.

Finding land in Enfield

Council land

We're legally obliged to be open about the land and buildings that we own. You can view our properties for sale.

We do dispose of sites that are surplus to our requirements. Disposal of our land and buildings are governed by our Property Procedure Rules and Section 123 of the Local Government Act. For more information about our ad hoc disposal procedures and the availability of sites, visit our property and economy pages.

Please note that the Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015 doesn't require that councils make land available specifically for self-build.

Private land

Land for sale is usually advertised in property magazines such as the Estates Gazette, and through estate agents and auction houses such as Savills, Lambert Smith Hampton and Knight Frank.

View our commercial sales and lettings.

Other public land

You can also bid for public land through the GLA's Small Sites Small Builders portal.

This aims to make more small publicly-owned sites available to small developers, housing associations, community-led groups and self-builders.

If you still need help, contact Cidi Greenaway by calling 020 8132 0833 or emailing cidi.greenaway@enfield.gov.uk.

We are required by the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 to publish a register of previously developed (brownfield) land.

The register is in two parts and is reviewed at least once per year.

Part one includes brownfield sites that meet the relevant criteria of being on previously developed land (as defined in the National Planning Policy Framework), and a minimum of 0.25 hectares or able to accommodate at least five homes. They must also be suitable, available and achievable.

View part one of the Brownfield Land Register (XLSX).

Part two is a subset of part one and includes sites granted Permission in Principle (PiP). We don't have any sites in part two of the register.
