THE VISION

Oxford's West End is set to become a vibrant city quarter where shops, restaurants and offices will be located alongside homes, public squares and leisure facilities. New buildings will be arranged around welcoming gathering places. Carefully designed open spaces will provide the setting for public events and a high quality retail offer will attract visitors and encourage them to spend time in the area.

Networks of cycle paths and pedestrian routes will encourage people out of their cars. The rich heritage of the West End will be brought to life through links to the area's past. Improvements to Oxford's central waterway will draw visitors whilst protecting its function as a wildlife corridor.

Driven by principles of social responsibility, the vision for Oxford's West End is to create an environment worthy of a world class city and one that future generations can be proud of. For further information on specific plans for the regeneration, visit our Development Sites section.
