A new report to mark Right to Build Day has revealed that one in three people in England are now interested in building their own home.

Right to Build Day (30 October) is an annual date in which councils in England must demonstrate that they have matched numbers on their Right to Build registers, which evidence how many people want to self build or custom build their own home.
