Skilled craftsmen on the South Beds council housing waiting list have been invted to build their own homes, in a do-it-yourself scheme in Eaton Bray. The idea is that the homes can then be sold to them at cost price.
South Beds District Council, which is backing the project, has sold a piece of land off Northall Close to the self-build consultants behind the scheme.
The plan is for 14 three-bedroom detached homes to be built, starting in the summer.
