Online consultation opens for Court Place Gardens redevelopment

An informal, online consultation has opened to gather views from the local community about the proposed redevelopment of the University’s graduate accommodation site at Court Place Gardens, between Iffley and Rose Hill.  See news for more information.

The project is the first to be taken forward by Oxford University Development Ltd (OUD) under the University’s joint venture partnership with Legal & General, announced in June last year. OUD is considering plans to replace the existing outdated housing at Court Place Gardens to create a high quality, new community for Oxford University graduate students and their families.

The consultation aims to gather priorities and preferences from local residents and graduate students, to help inform more detailed proposals that will be consulted on more widely after the summer. OUD is using a digital consultation platform called Give My View, which provides a project timeline, set of FAQs and a poll inviting participants to share their views, which is open until 3 July.

OUD is also taking this opportunity to support three very worthwhile local causes – Rose Hill Junior Youth Club, Friends of St Mary’s Iffley, and Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust’s “Wild Oxford” project – all of which will receive a donation from OUD on behalf of everyone who completes the poll.
