The latest series of Kevin McCloud’s architectural show sees things go up in scale.

McCloud is following a project in Bicester, Oxfordshire, where hundreds of plots of land formerly owned by the Ministry of Defence are now being made available to buy. The show follows ten households constructing their dream homes over a five year period.

Not surprisingly, the relationships between the neighbours start to become strained as we see just how much some people are relying on others for help.

Grand Designs: the Street is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
