David Lock bags Oxford masterplanning job

David Lock Associates (DLA) has been commissioned by Oxford City Council to masterplan the Oxpens district of the city

The Milton Keynes-based studio is producing a masterplan and supplementary planning document for the west end site close to Oxford city centre.

One of Oxford’s last remaining brownfield sites, the plot represents the city’s single biggest re-development opportunity according to DLA.

The site is home to several buildings including a post office and a 1984 Grimshaw-designed ice rink which will be kept.

MJP Architects provide specialist advice on building design for the project. DLA previously prepared the council’s Oxford West End Area Development Framework.

 A consultation will be launched in the Autumn.
