CHANGES have been made to the major redevelopment of Oxford's first power station after the public had their say earlier this year.

In March Said Business School revealed plans to transform Osney Power Station into a 121-bedroom teaching centre, which would be used as an ‘executive education centre’ for mature professionals on short-stay courses.

Some members of the public and heritage campaigners described feared the designs were 'too bulky'.

Oxford University - behind the scheme - said it had made a number of changes after feedback from the public.

The amendments will be revealed to the public on Friday and Saturday at a third consultation event ahead of an application later this year.

The plans have also been updated following professional advice and ongoing discussions with Oxford City Council officers.

In its initial plans, Oxford University promised to repair the brick frontage of the power station – officially closed in 1968 – and ensure the new construction complements the existing roof.

The 121 bedrooms would be spread across four of the five floors and there would be a courtyard, dining areas and an ‘agora’ central meeting space in the Arthur Street building.

The design team will be answering questions on the new plans between 4pm and 7pm on Friday at the Thatcher Business Centre opposite Oxford Station and again on Saturday between 10am and 12pm.
