An Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) reviews progress of Local Plans and includes monitoring information on employment, housing and natural environment. 

The Local Plan allocates sites for development in Bicester, with the majority of the homes being built in: North West Bicester (including Elmsbrook); Graven Hill; South West Bicester (Kingsmere); South East Bicester and Gavray Drive.

Each site offers different housing options, with choices ranging from traditional new build homes in Kingsmere, innovative zero-carbon living in Elmsbrook to the freedom and originality of a self-build at Graven Hill.
