Two years ago I wrote an article for a trade publication, mentioning one of my favourite films, expounding my views on the status of the self and custom housebuilding industry in the UK and got very excited about a very large, revolutionary self and custom build scheme that, for nearly 2,000 families, would solve the age old problem of not having a plot to build on.
Today, our collective desire to self-build has been recognised and supported with legislation and the large scheme, Graven Hill
in Bicester, is now a reality.
Once completed Graven Hill will be the UK’s largest self and custom-build development.
The scheme, which is arranged around a wooded hill, is one of the largest of its type in Europe and provides a broad range of opportunities – from smaller, modestly priced plots suitable for starter and affordable homes, through to larger detached houses and apartment blocks.
