Oxford Brookes University is committed to ensuring that students can continue to live in high-quality accommodation and to meeting the local authority’s threshold for the number of students living outside of university accommodation.To meet these commitments, the University is intending to submit a new planning application in early 2021 for the redevelopment of part of Clive Booth Student Village.
A previous planning application to develop the student accommodation site was unsuccessful in June 2019. Over the past 18 months, the University has carefully considered its next steps in relation to the development and reflected on how it can help to address the concerns previously raised by the local community.
During November and December 2020 we invited the local community to provide feedback on initial proposals to redevelop part of the site and captured more than 300 responses.
The University has carefully considered all of the points made and this feedback has shaped our developing plans. We are now providing a further opportunity for community members to comment on the advanced design proposals for the site before we finalise the plans to submit to Oxford City Council for consideration.
