The “Build It” awards are held each year bringing together manufacturers and key industry figures in recognition of innovation and excellence in the custom and self-build home sector.

Cherwell District Council has been nominated in the Best Council for Self or Custom Build category and will compete with three other councils for the top prize – Glasgow, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and Plymouth. Meanwhile Graven Hill Village Development Company has been nominated with four other contenders for Best Custom Build Project or Model.

Graeme Kane, Chief Operating Officer at Cherwell District Council, said: “The fact that this work is being nominated for such a high profile national award is real proof of the high quality and innovation on show when compared to other areas of the country.

“The overall aim is to raise the profile of the Cherwell area as a great place to live. My congratulations to everybody involved in this nomination and let’s hope there’s more good news to come on the night of the awards.”

Karen Curtin, managing director at Graven Hill, said: "It's a privilege to be recognised in the Build It Awards. Graven Hill is keen to promote different and innovative ways for people to get onto the property ladder and these nominations are further evidence that the development is being noticed. We look forward to the event in November and will have our fingers crossed for a successful evening."

The winners will be announced at the Build it thirtieth birthday Gala Dinner on Friday November 29, at the Hilton Bankside, London.
