Large Scale Self-Build To Kick Off Soon In Oxfordshire

Recommended Posts

The Graven Hill site lies just to the south of Bicester and extends to nearly 190 hectares. That’s about the size of 300 football fields.

The site is currently occupied by the Ministry of Defence (MoD). Over the next five years the MoD will be vacating the majority of the site.

The site has direct access to the bypass that runs around Bicester, and it is roughly 3 miles from junction 9 of the M40.

The site is arranged in a circle, around a wooded hill. The woodland and vast open space will create a really great place to live.

Outline planning for the Graven Hill is now in place for 1,900 new homes, along with a primary school, employment space, a local pub/restaurant and a small number of local shops.

During the rest of 2014 Cherwell District Council will develop detailed plans for the whole site, setting out exactly what should be built and where.

I did see that announced some time back. I will assume that since "Cherwell District Council will develop detailed plans for the whole site, setting out exactly what should be built and where." the plots will be expensive, half will be left empty and the half that are build will be shoeboxes with no gardens.

The only involvement the planners and Cherwell District Council need are to split the site into plots then arrange the sale of the plots to individuals and small builders with an uplift clause so that they cant flip them.

It will never happen - you are deluded.

But if i wanted to build on some land i owned in this constituency id never get the plan past the endless amounts of over paid and pointless bureaucrats in the council who have central govt created laws to back them up.

But if i was a multi billion pound building company i could build an estate of dreadful slave boxes where i want.

Fair play to them but its too little too late for a generation.

Depending on how this goes: http://www.surreymirror.co.uk/New-application-submitted-save-Honeycrock-Farm-s/story-20661190-detail/story.html

I reckon soon you might be able to get away with building without permission and the council not being able to demolish it.
