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. These webpages were updated on Monday 25 January to provide a further opportunity for community members to comment by Friday 5 February on the advanced design proposals for the site. A more detailed set of designs on the updated plans, as discussed during the February webinars, can be downloaded as a PDF (20MB).
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to provide their feedback and a further update will be provided before final plans are submitted to Oxford City Council.
