Oxford seeks 'visionary' affordable housing ideas
The Oxford Strategic Partnership (OSP) has already received some ideas, including self-build projects and plans for building affordable housing on top of car parks, but is seeking further submissions.
OSP chairman Peter Couchman said: ‘We want this to be an opportunity for visions, aspirations, ideas and solutions to be put forward so that we really can find a way for the Oxford Strategic Partnership to help increase the amount of truly affordable housing in Oxford.’
The OSP – which has representatives from Oxford City Council, Oxford Brookes University and Oxford University, among others – said it would consider ideas and designs ‘whether [applicants] were professionals with a fully worked-out scheme or members of the public with an idea’.
Ideas or examples of good practice should be sent to OSP co-ordinator Sebastian Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Sebastian Johnson, Oxford Strategic Partnership, c/o Oxford Town Hall, St Aldate’s, Oxford OX1 1BX.
