Finding Land with Buildstore PlotSearch

Location is just as important as the design and build of your dream home, so time should be taken to identify the best location for your self-build home.

We recommend BuildStore PlotSearch, the UK’s premier land-finding resource. Using this tool, you can source your perfect plot of land for free. Once signed up, you will have access to the UK’s largest and most accurate database of self-build opportunities for timber frame properties. All PlotSearch listings are reputable, and many plots listed are not available through other providers. You can also sign up for ‘PlotAlert’ email notifications to receive listings as soon as they are published.

Planning permission is guaranteed with all PlotSearch building plots. Without planning permission, land cannot be used as a building plot. This is why PlotSearch only pursue building opportunities that have planning in place.

Note: Refurbishment opportunities do not usually require planning permission as long as no structural or exterior changes are required (meaning that conversions typically do require planning permission).

PlotSearch is updated daily, using multiple sources to ensure you never miss out on an ideal plot of land. Sources span from estate agents to private sellers, to the Ministry of Defence, to the Church of England. To further ensure accuracy, PlotSearch contact contributors every fortnight to review listing information.
