Blackbird Leys District Centre and Knights Road


Oxford City Council and Catalyst are working in partnership to bring new shops and community facilities, and at least 250 homes to the heart of Blackbird Leys.

The project will focus on the District Centre (including the ‘top shops’) and land between Knights Road and the Kassam Stadium.

Across both sites, we will deliver at least 250 homes, as well as improved community facilities, landscaped green and open space and other community benefits.

The development will include homes for social rent and shared ownership. The City Council’s policy is for 40% of housing development to be for social rent and 10% shared ownership.

A key aim will be to address the acute need for new homes in Oxford, including social rent.
