The government has unveiled plans to review the Right to Build laws today, in order to boost self build and custom build numbers in England. 

The announcement coincides with Right to Build Day, a key date in the self build calendar, whereby local authorities in England must evidence there are sufficient plots to meet demand from prospective self builders in their area.
