Families on the South Beds council housing waiting list were invited to make a saving of more than £11,000 by building their own homes.

South Beds District Council had sold a piece of land off Northall Close, Eaton Bray, to Rother Self-Build Consultants.

The company would provide backup throughout the DIY scheme to build 15 three-bedroom detached homes.

Applicants would pay £28,750 per home - but the actual value of each property was expected to be more than £40,000.
