The University of Oxford is holding a public consultation where the vision and masterplan for the redevelopment of the Osney Mead Industrial Estate will be displayed.
The Osney Mead Industrial Estate is an under-utilised site in an important area of Oxford which benefits from good access to the city centre. As one of the principal landowners, the University, in partnership with local agencies, is in a good position to put forward a coherent vision for the site which could help unlock its potential and bring economic benefits to the City and the region.
The University is preparing a masterplan for the regeneration of the whole site which aims to provide increased opportunities for employment, homes and supporting uses, and better pedestrian and cycle connections to the city centre and surrounding areas. It envisages a transformation of Osney Mead into a pleasant waterside place, with new publicly accessible outdoor spaces and improved landscape, and reduced risk of flooding.
As part of the initial assessment work on the site a masterplan has been prepared by the University to help frame future discussions and understand the issues affecting redevelopment. The University now wishes to seek the views of local residents and stakeholders on the masterplan. This will help identify key issues which need to be addressed in taking the proposals forward. Following the consultation event timescales for progressing matters will be set out and further consultation events undertaken once feedback has been taken in to account.
Members of the University and the design team will be available to answer any queries you may have. We welcome feedback on the proposals prior to the University taking forward the detailed masterplanning of the site. A hardcopy feedback form will be available at the consultation sessions and an online version will follow on the University’s website together with an electronic version of the display information. The University will review all feedback and will take it into account in progressing the masterplan. Subsequent consultation events will take place as the masterplan and specific proposals progress.
