Consent won for apartments in Osney Town Conservation Area

AJA have won consent for a new block of apartments and a new extension to the existing West Oxford Democrats Club in the Osney Town Conservation Area beside the Thames in central Oxford.

It’s a polite, contextual design – all brick and stone and bays and stacks – but not without sculptural modelling of course.

This took literally years of negotiation with the planners but it’s worth it: much needed new housing on a highly sustainable site and the sale will fund the historic social club’s expansion and revival.
