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.
