If you work in the custom and self build arena consider joining the National Custom and Self Build Association at its conference on the 14 November.

The day is an in-depth look at some of the major issues affecting anyone involved with custom and self build professionally. The content has been curated to review issues around planning, policy and delivery, underpinned with the latest data on the sector.

The conference is at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre (NSBRC) in Swindon for 2023, from 9:30-4:30, and costs £195 (excluding VAT), and NaCSBA members can secure free tickets. Tickets also include a buffet networking lunch.
