Over 30 people attended a public consultation event at St Frideswide Church, Oxford, this week (20 September) to help shape the future plans for the estate, following a tragic explosion in February 2017.

A2Dominion, which has been working closely with Oxford City Council, proposes replacing the existing housing at Gibbs Crescent, which comprises mainly bedsit accommodation, with approximately 140 one, two and three bedroom homes. Of these, half would be for affordable housing.

Jim Smith, Development Manager at A2Dominion said: “Our aim for the redevelopment of Gibbs Crescent is to create a mixed tenure and sustainable community that will benefit residents and the wider community.”

”The public consultation was well-attended, and we are now reviewing the feedback we received to help shape the designs for the final planning application, which is due to be submitted later in the year.”

As well as new homes, the proposals include providing a car club for residents and extensive cycle storage.

The redevelopment proposes to open up the estate to the nearby river and footpath.
