  • They plan to build 5,000 homes longer term. The first phase – the Exemplar – is now underway – (granted planning permission in July 2012) NB – There is a local lettings plan.

Full eco specifications for houses: Triple glazed windows, highly air-tight doors, cavity and roof insulation to retain heat High energy efficient rated appliances that use less energy and water Energy efficient ventilation that captures escaping heat and re-uses it 30m2 of solar panels to generate electricity on every roof Rain water harvesting that recycles waste water; saving bills and energy No boiler – a Central Heat and Power System supplies heat and hot water (saving bills and maintenance) Visit: http://nwbicester.co.uk/the-first-phase/living/eco-homes/ for more info.
  • Graven Hill : Outline planning for the Graven Hill is now in place. Just south of Bicester. 600 ha, currently MoD but over next 5 years they will be vacating. The site is arranged in a circle, around a wooded hill. The woodland and vast open space will create a really great place to live. 70% of the homes (self-build opportunities) at Graven Hill will be sold on the open market. Anyone with the right resources can buy one of these homes or plots of land. There may also be some opportunities for open market rented housing for those people not yet in a position to buy their own home. 30% of the homes (self-build opportunities) at Graven Hill will be affordable homes to buy or rent. Priority for the affordable homes to buy will be given to local people who currently live, work or study in the Cherwell area and have incomes below £60,000. South West Bicester: Kingsmere (Phase 1) is currently under construction and will provide 1,631 homes. The 650 homes above makes up phase 2. The site is in an accessible location relatively close to the town centre. The occupiers of new housing will have access from the secondary school, other services and facilities, public open space, places of employment and health village already planned for provision within Phase 1. A community woodland / green buffer will be provided between Chesterton village and the Development Area Bicester Business Park: The Bicester Business Park site has planning permission for a 60,000m² business park incorporating offices (B1) and hotel (C1) use. This development area is located immediately to the east of the South West Bicester (Kingsmere) urban extension, less than 1 km from Bicester Town Railway Station and close to major retail uses and town centre facilities. Bicester Gateway: Knowledge economy employment development to the south of the existing retail area (Wyevale Garden Centre), adjacent to the A41. North East Bicester Business Park: Business Park for employment development East Bicester: Residential development as a first phase of a potential larger mixed use site for employment development to the west of the proposed ring road to the south east of Bicester. Further phases will come forward after the end of the current plan period. All of the development will be bounded to the east by the south east relief road. Jobs created – At least 3,241 (in total, some of which is beyond the plan period) Town centre: The redevelopment of Bicester Town Centre has started with the redevelopment of Bure Place, which opened in July 2013 including the new Sainsbury’s supermarket, Vue Cinema, car park and bus interchange.
  • I took out the picture of Dave Richards from the Banbury Guardian website because it is not the most recent article. Facing challenges from other retailers
  • Oxford City Council plans a major industrial/commercial development in Northern Oxford. The council is calling this project "Northern Gateway". The development proposed is on 50-100 acres of green land near the Wolvercote roundabout. It will comprise 1-2 million square feet of buildings, attracting a possible 12,000 more cars to the area with no plan to upgrade the current road infrastructure. Sandwiched between the A40, A34, and Woodstock Roads, the development would undoubtedly attract more congestion and pollution to the already over-capacitated area. Part of Oxford City Council’s ‘Core Strategy’, a blueprint for the development of Oxford until 2026. http://www.oxford.gov.uk/Library/Documents/Core%20Strategy/Oxford%20Core%20Strategy%202026.pdf (p.50) Key strengths e.g. science + technology, research + development, +/or non-teaching university development Floor space - The B1 floorspace would have an overall limit of 80,000m squared, which would be phased so that a maximum of 20,000m squared by 2016, and a maximum of 55,000m squared by the end of the Core Strategy period 2026. The remainder would only be deliverable beyond 2026. Shops, cafes = 2,500 metres squared Leisure, hotel = 7,450 metres squared Will include transport mitigation measures
  • Current status: Public consultation finished on 20/08/2013. Now pending consideration. Image from: http://www.wolvercote.org/NeighbourhoodPlan/3%208th%20March%20Presentation%20Turnberry%20with%20latest%20site%20plans%20etc.pdf
  • PLANS for the biggest housing development in Oxford in a generation have cleared their first hurdle after winning the approval of councillors. The city council’s east area planning committee last night approved an outline planning application for the 885-home estate at a special meeting at the Town Hall. The development will extend the existing Barton estate to the west, and include a new primary school, a park, a hotel, a supermarket and other shops and community facilities. A total of £16.6m will also be spent by developer Barton Oxford LLP – a partnership of the city council and developer Grosvenor – on infrastructure like transport links, school places and community services.
