The UK’s first-ever ‘plot shop’ has been officially opened in the town of Bicester in Oxfordshire by the housing and planning minister Alok Sharma.
The plot shop is located on the high street and the outlet will sell plots of land on the Graven Hill site in Oxfordshire to those who wish to build their own home.
The Graven Hill development is set to be the largest of its kind in the UK, delivering up to 1,900 new self- and custom-build homes.
The plot shop promises to pioneer custom- and self-build as a mainstream choice for aspiring homeowners.

Building your own home: The benefits of custom build
The primary benefit of custom build is that you can achieve a home designed specifically for you and your family’s lifestyle. A flexible, quality living space, tailored to suit your requirements, now and in the future.
What is a custom build home?
Custom build is one of the ways that the Government is using to solve the housing shortage. Custom build homes are self-build homes facilitated in some way by a developer. This still offers the chance to have a unique home that suits your needs, lifestyle and design preferences, but through a more hands-off approach than a traditional self-build.
Working from home
If you enjoy the independence and freedom that comes with working from home, custom build allows you to create an inspired workspace, whether you want a multi-purpose area, separate room or a studio in your garden.
