Oxford Central West - Design Charrette

Earlier this year URBED helped facilitate a workshop drawing together the Academy of Urbanism and the Oxford Civic Society to look at zone around the station known as Oxford Central West. This area is crucial to the future of the city and is perhaps the most extraordinary underdeveloped area of any historic city in the UK. Further more with plans for the redevelopment of the station being promoted and masterplans being announced for Oxpens and Osney Mead, there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform the area into a new quarter for the city, fit for the 21st century.
