Upon completing her first Self-build in 2002, Angela Doran became a committed advocate of self-provided housing models. She wholeheartedly believes that Custom and Self-build should be options available to all, regardless of wealth or social status. 

As well as completing further individual projects while running a small development company, she has worked for several years as a consultant to Self-build groups and local government. She specialises in building connections between communities and agencies, such as regeneration companies, planning departments, local authorities and housing professionals, ensuring that the needs of each are met equitably. Currently, Angela is leading Glasgow City Council’s pioneering Self-build project in Maryhill, while continuing to provide help and support to various groups across Scotland through her work as a director of Assemble Collective Self-build. She is also the Scottish Rep for NaCSBA.
