Plan for central Oxford will be displayed

June 15, 2018 by  

Proposals for the regeneration of Oxford’s city centre are set to go on display.

Residents of Oxford will have an opportunity to examine the plan to transform its core. If the initiative gets the green light then almost £10 million could be spent on making it happen. Graphic design from Oxford can be used within the property sector.

The vision involves some demolition. The buildings between 1 and 5 George Street could be dispensed with or used differently. It is thought that a fresh mix of office space and retail space may be an improvement on the current arrangements. Eateries could also feature in the redevelopment.

The public will be entitled to give their verdict on the concept in the second half of June. A period of several hours over two days has been allocated to enable the consultative process. Feedback from the community about the content of the policy will be welcomed.

The Long Room in Oxford’s Town Hall will be employed to stage the event. Only when all the data has been gathered in will the planning application be completed. The submission of the application is expected to take place in the next couple of months.

Oxford City Council is supportive of the scheme for several reasons. It would like to improve the economy in the neighbourhood. It would also appreciate it if it could obtain more rent from the area.
