CONGREGATION 14 May 2 p.m.

Voting on Resolution allocating the site for a new building

Explanatory note

The University has provided funding to construct a new building on the Mansfield Road Sports Ground for the University Club, releasing the site occupied by Nos. 6, 7, and 8 South Parks Road for another use. Council proposes that this site, together with the undeveloped site between No. 6 South Parks Road and Pharmacology (formerly known as the `Brain and Behaviour Site') be allocated for the construction of a building to replace and improve the existing supporting facilities for biomedical research and services at Oxford. More than half the cost of the new building is to be met by a grant from the Science Research Investment Fund.

Text of Resolution

That, on the move of the University Club to new premises, the sites of Nos. 6, 7, and 8 South Parks Road, together with the undeveloped site between No. 6 South Parks Road and Pharmacology, and comprising in total about 3,100 sq.m. of land, be allocated for the construction of a biomedical sciences building.
