On Friday 13 November, Victoria Prentis joined Councillor John Donaldson, Cherwell District Council’s Executive Member for Housing, at the Build! Project site in Banbury. Build! offers individuals and groups the opportunity to either build or renovate a property. Those who participate in the project can benefit from a reduced price on purchases or lower rental rates.

Victoria toured The Orchard Build! location and met with many of the builders there. She was given a real insight into what this ambitious project is trying to achieve. By the end of 2015, 250 new homes will have been constructed throughout Banbury and Bicester through Build!.

Speaking about the Build! Project, Victoria Prentis MP said: “It is brilliant that people are being given this fantastic opportunity to build their own homes. Having completed my own self build, I know how rewarding such tasks can be. This level of personal involvement in the building of a house, truly makes it a home. I am looking forward to seeing the transformation of the chosen Build! areas as more people complete their homes and move in.”
