16 Aug 2018 Oxford North – Oxford’s new urban district – public consultation begins
BSG Ecology has been part of the professional team that has worked to bring forward proposals for the Oxford North development over the last 5 years. We are delighted that the project has now reached the public consultation stage, which started on Friday 23rd June.
Oxford North will be an exciting extension to the city, creating a new connected district and transforming the area. It will be the most substantial and significant infrastructure project that Oxford has seen for nearly 100 years.
This new urban district will see £100 million of infrastructure investment, including £30 million being spent on improving the walk, cycle, bus and highway networks. It will be delivering 87,000 sqm of workspace, creating around 4,500 new jobs, 480 new homes for 1,500 people, and 23 acres of open spaces including three new parks. It is forecast that once complete, Oxford North will be adding circa £150 million per year in gross value to the UK economy.
BSG Ecology will be attending public consultation events and look forward to engaging with consultees on issues relating to nature and wildlife.
