About Graven Hill

Graven Hill is the UK’s first large-scale self and custom build development project and is leading the way in making building your own home mainstream, as seen on Channel 4’s Grand Designs: The Street. The project is being delivered by Graven Hill Village Development Company (GHVC), a company wholly owned by Cherwell District Council. Graven Hill is an ex-Ministry of Defence site located to the southern edge of Bicester, Oxfordshire, and will evolve over the next decade as a new community of up to 1,900 homes.

It is expected that around 40% of these homes will be designed or built by the purchasers themselves. Home-buyers can alternatively choose to tailor the design and finish of a ready-built home.

As well as the residential development, community facilities will also be provided, including; shops, a village pub, community centre, school and nursery, as well as public open spaces and sports facilities. Part of the wider Graven hill site has also been set aside for 1 million square feet of commercial investment over the life of the project.

The concept of Graven Hill opens up the possibility for anyone to design and create their own home. Purchasers have a wide choice of routes to making their self-build dream a reality, at prices that compare favourably to the local property market. There are options for all sizes of build and budget. The purchaser’s self/custom build journey can also be as ‘hands on’ or ‘hands off’ as they feel comfortable.

GHVDC will be directly providing a range of products across the site, including Self-Build plots, Custom Build New Homes, Apartments and Affordable Homes.

We are based at the Plot Shop in central Bicester and on the site itself. The organisation currently employs twenty members of staff covering functions including Sales & Marketing, Operations and Finance & Governance.
