Statement regarding B Block at East Oxford Community Centre

Published: Friday, 27th April 2018

Tim Sadler, Executive Director for Sustainable City at Oxford City Council, said:

“B Block, at the back of the East Oxford Community Centre site, has been in poor condition for some time. We recently became aware of deterioration in the structure of B Block and appointed an independent structural surveyor to look at the building. The surveyor reported their findings to us yesterday afternoon (26/4) and, unfortunately, they found that B Block is no longer safe to use. To protect the public, we closed B Block this morning (27/4). There are three tenants of B Block and we will be working with them closely to find alternative office and teaching space; we have already moved Oxford Include’s lessons for this week and next to other parts of the East Oxford Community Centre site. B Block will remain closed until the planned redevelopment of the East Oxford Community Centre site next year.”
