BADSBA subscribers are notified of dozens of potential plot sources, and over 100 relevant websites.

Group self building is a route to finding better value plots, and avoiding some major NIMBY problems.  BADSBA assists with organising local self build groups, including giving support for site seeking.  Subscribers are given a free copy of the BADSBA essential guide to group self building.

Sites with potential for 1 – 500 houses (or a mixture of dwellings and other buildings) are sought anywhere in the South England or South Wales. Working with the Custom Homes Alliance we can add value and improve cashflow by getting planning permission for the houses, putting in the roads and utilities, dividing the site into building plots and selling on to custom builders and self finishers.
