The Oxford Station Masterplan is in options development stage. Consultants have been appointed to engage key stakeholders – such as public transport companies, landowners and our strategic board – to inform the brief and develop the options.
Further stakeholder and public consultation is currently programmed for early 2023.
Meanwhile, Network Rail is advancing proposals to increase capacity and improve services at Oxford Station, including a secondary station entrance on the western side and surrounding roads. Further information can be accessed at: Oxford Corridor Phase 2 - Network Rail
Oxford City Council formally adopted its vision for Oxford Train Station in November 2017.
This vision document – known as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) – aims to create a new transport interchange and a distinctive gateway to Oxford.
The City Council’s aims are that the new train station:
- Promotes an outward-looking development that creates synergies with neighbouring development sites
- Acts as an effective gateway into Oxford
- Is safe and convenient for pedestrians and cyclists
- Promotes an excellent connectivity network with the station at its core
- Maximises development potential of the station area responding positively to the operational requirements of the railway and forecast increase in passenger numbers
- Responds imaginatively and sensitively to Oxford’s heritage context.
Oxford City Council continues to work closely with Oxfordshire County Council, Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Network Rail and the Department of Transport to secure the significant investment required to take the Masterplan forward.
The SPD and supporting documents can be viewed on our Oxford Station SPD page.
