What happens next?

Thank you for viewing this website on the development proposals by Unite Students.

The full planning application was submitted to Oxford City Council in August and this has been validated. The planning number is 17/02140/FUL.

Whilst the planning application has been submitted, Unite Students is very keen to see that community consultation continues.

In this respect, the company in August circulated more than 3,600 copies of a four-page detailed leaflet outlining the proposals over a wide area, stretching from the Eastern By-pass in the east across to Peat Moors and Leiden Road in the north-east to Fern Hill Road in the south and Temple Road, Temple Cowley, in the south-west. Households and businesses within the above area received the leaflet.

Unite Students waited for the planning application to be validated and given a planning number so that as many people as possible could be made aware of the proposals and have information, including the planning application number, so that they could respond to this important scheme.

Oxford City Council is conducting its own public consultation and its website includes detailed reports from Unite Students’ consultants which support the full planning application. The council website will also provide an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to comment on the application.

A year ago, more than 3,200 invitation flyers were circulated prior to a public exhibition held in St Francis’ Church, Hollow Way, on Thursday, 20 October, outlining future proposals for the Cowley Barracks’ site.

Another public exhibition is being held at St Francis’ Church, Hollow Way, on Wednesday, 18 October 2017 from 3pm to 8pm.

For those unable to attend, a copy of the exhibitions boards and an online questionnaire will be available on this website from Thursday, 19 October 2017.
