Carter Jonas advised Kier Property on the Northern Gateway scheme, which is to include up to 90,000 sqm of business accommodation and 500 new homes.
The Carter Jonas Planning Team worked closely with the development consortium that included Kier Property and the principal landowners – Worcester College and St John’s College. The consortium successfully promoted the site and scheme through the Development Plan process, culminating in the allocation of the Northern Gateway land in the Oxford City Core Strategy in 2011.
Subsequently, Carter Jonas supported the consortium in working with Oxford City Council to progress the Northern Gateway Area Action Plan, which was examined in early 2015 and adopted in July 2015. The development will create up to 4,000 jobs, along with new homes, retail, hotel and related leisure facilities.
