A step in the right direction but this bit below is a bit worrying,had a quick skim read still looks like you will have to jump through more hoops than a circus pony just to be accepted on the register, is it then down to the council to find and release the land at their leisure ?

3(1)The regulations may make provision about a person’s eligibility to be
entered on a register.

(2)30The regulations may include provision relating to—

(a)the circumstances of an individual, including provision about age,
nationality and connections to an area;

( B)the type of house intended to be built;

©an individual’s ability to fund the acquisition of the land and the
35building of the house;

(d)an individual’s intentions as regards occupation of the house.

edit ...Have not got a clue why the emotion con appears ,,,,,Doc wrote in HTML?

They have a planning system like that in Ireland, if you local and your family owns land (more than likely) then you get automatic permission to build on your land.

It lead to the housing boom and houses being built in the middle of nowhere, rather than in towns where the housing is needed.
