I can provide advice on:

The Oxford Planning Team at Carter Jonas have worked closely with Wadham College and the wider project team to obtain planning permission for the redevelopment of 265-279 Iffley Road and associated garages off Percy Street in East Oxford.

The approved redevelopment includes demolition of the vacant and out-of-keeping car showroom, car repair business, garages and flats; to be replaced by a high-quality development of 117 en-suite student bedrooms to accommodate Wadham College’s second-year students. At present, second-year students are required to seek private rented accommodation in Oxford. 

The scheme will also re-provide 11 self-contained flats and 150 sqm of employment space on site as well as a ‘garden room’ for flexible use and improved landscaping both within the site and on its main frontages.

The planning permission comes after almost 2 years of consultation and discussions with Oxford City Council officers, Ward Councillors, local residents and other stakeholders; which has resulted in a final scheme that makes a positive contribution to the area whilst also meeting Wadham College’s need for student accommodation.

Wadham College have also agreed to pay significant financial contributions towards affordable housing and infrastructure provision in Oxford and committed to fund the implementation of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the vicinity of the development (subject to consultation).

The proposal was unanimously approved at Planning Committee in January 2017 and the planning permission was issued in April 2017 following completion of the necessary legal agreements.

Carter Jonas will continue to work with Wadham College, the project team and appointed contractors to ensure that all planning conditions are successfully discharged.

The development is expected to be ready for first occupation by September 2019.

Carter Jonas’ Planning Team have played an important part in driving forward the process of consultation and planning. Their strong knowledge of the regulations and process, and their practical experience has been really valuable.
