Following an in-depth selection process, L&Q Estates was proud to be selected as the preferred developer partner of Brasenose College, Oxford, to promote a significant urban extension to the south of Oxford City in South Oxfordshire District.
Our combined vision involves the creation of up to 2,000 high quality new homes (including student and university research fellow accommodation) as well as commercial uses – providing the College with a source of long-term investment income from land which has been in the ownership of this world-renowned College since the 16th century.
As a College with a global reputation, its chief concern was working with a respected developer who could guarantee to deliver a quality development that created a long-lasting legacy while also having the confidence that we would work alongside the College in a collaborative manner to provide a development which will serve to enhance its public reputation in Oxford and the surrounding area.
Significant to our selection was our proven track record and our willingness to embark on a thorough programme of community consultation. In addition, we have committed to service the development with strategic, site-wide infrastructure, which will deliver a high quality public realm incorporating schools, public open spaces and a country park around the existing flood plain of the Fox Brook.
“L&Q Estates is expert in the identification, promotion and acquisition of land for residential, commercial and mixed use developments, building on years of experience in the development sector. I recently acted for them in their successful promotion of 1800 homes on a Green Belt site at Northfield, Oxford, through the protracted South
Oxfordshire Local Plan process.
In their role as Master Developer, L&Q Estates assembled the land, devised the planning strategy and used their multi-disciplinary team to ensure a high quality development which optimised the development of the site whilst ensuring a sense of place. L&Q Estates invested significant time, resources and expertise at each stage of the process to deliver an outcome which will be successful for both the landowner and the adjacent local communities.”
