Christ Church and Dorchester Residential Management are progressing plans for a development in an area known as Land North of Bayswater Brook (Bayswater). The site is allocated for development in the adopted South Oxfordshire Local Plan, which forms the basis for all planning decisions in the district. Bayswater will provide much needed new homes to address Oxford’s unmet housing need.

Bayswater lies to the west of Barton and to the north of Barton Park, close to the A40 north-east of Oxford city centre.

Second public consultation - 29 June to 31 July 2022

Our second public consultation has now closed.

During this stage of consultation we welcomed views on our updated masterplan, including plans to bring historic buildings back to use, community uses and ways to promote greener travel.

We also consulted on our proposals for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the A40. View our latest proposals

We are now in the process of reviewing and considering all feedback received from the consultation and are continuing to work with the local community to help shape our plans.

After this, we will be submitting a planning application to South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC). We expect to submit this application in autumn 2022.

The bridge over the A40 will be a separate planning application and is expected to be submitted to both South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxford City Council at the same time.

People will have the chance to comment on our applications when they are submitted to SODC and Oxford City Council.
