Over half of us dream of one day building our own home but finding a suitable building plot can often be a barrier. A new site in Bicester, Oxfordshire is set to change this when the new Graven Hill redevelopment project gets underway.
The project will combine custom build, community build and self-build projects across the 600 hectare site.
No matter how big or small your self-build dream, Graven Hill will provide an opportunity, from larger individual plots through to more modest plots for those on a smaller budget. The site is large enough to accommodate over 1,000 self build homes.
If you want to build a Potton home then the Graven Hill site could present an opportunity to do so. The site already has outlined planning permission for 1,900 new homes which will be accompanied by a primary school, offices, shops and a local pub.
The site was previously occupied by the Ministry of Defence but will be vacated over the next few years. Graven Hill boasts direct access to the bypass that surrounds Bicester and is just three miles from junction nine of the M40.
In regard to house types, the options are endless; you don’t need to adhere to a certain uniform design for your new home.
Self-build houses must meet the individual Plot Passport requirements and the Graven Hill Design Code. The planning permission will ensure that all the houses are constructed in a sustainable and energy efficient manner.
