The University is holding an online-only second public consultation on updated proposals to extend and refurbish the Tinbergen Building.

The University will be submitting a planning application to Oxford City Council for a two storey extension to the southern end of the Tinbergen Building to provide additional space for chemistry teaching laboratories.

Following the first round of public consultations on 17 and 18 July 2015, this second consultation highlights the changes and amendments which have evolved through design development, feedback from the public consultation and the Oxford Design Review Panel.

Visitors to the July consultation were invited to provide feedback and an online survey was available for a further two weeks afterwards.

This second consultation will focus on:

  • the changes that have made to the design since the July consultation
  • the rationale behind the changes
  • an outline of the planning application that the University intends to submit to Oxford City Council in respect of the Tinbergen Building

The Tinbergen Building sits in the University’s Science Area and was designed by Sir Leslie Martin and built in 1970. The University is also seeking to replace some of the existing ‘pods’ that provide the stepped profile of the building, and the addition of new pods to create further accommodation, which are intended to rationalise and more closely reflect the original design concept of the building. The University is also taking the opportunity with this application to undertake internal refurbishment.

You are invited to view the updated proposals here and to provide feedback via an online feedback survey which can be found here. This consultation will close on Monday 28 September.
