East Oxford Games Hall 5 Collins Street Oxford Oxfordshire OX4 1XS
1 October 2020
Demolition of games hall and erection of 14 residential dwellings formed of 8 one-bedroom and 6 two-bedroom apartments, with associated access and landscaping. (Amended plans)
We looked at this before and commended the proposal to create 14 residential units on this somewhat run-down brownfield site. The site is adjacent to a Brookes student accommodation block and when the student accommodation above the Tesco building takes place a larger community will be created. Adjacent to the Games Hall are Council owned flats (East Street). There is a significant need for increased social housing in the area for key workers and those unable to get on the housing ladder. This is an excellent proposal and should be approved.
