Plans have been submitted to Oxford City Council to demolish a house and rebuild two new homes in its place.

188 Woodstock road, between Moreton road and Beech Croft road, is a mid-1930’s semi-detached house.

The proposals for 188 Woodstock Road include the demolition of the detached property and the construction of two, new semi-detached houses on the site.

An initial application was submitted on December 22 2021. However, this application was withdrawn following comments from, and discussions with, the planning officers.

The applicant, JPPC Chartered Town Planners, believes the new proposals include clearer information about the rear of the building.

Plans would see a contemporary take on a pair of large 1920s semi-detached houses.

In the planning documents, the applicant states described the design: “The hipped roof is a dominant feature, with generous overhanging eaves. This element is playfully articulated by extending over the first floor bay windows. These windows form the dominant feature of the facade, articulated in a bronze finish.”

The exterior of the properties would match surrounding north Oxford and would make use of multi-brick as a staple material.

It would be paired with red clay tiles and bronze accents on the windows. Dark offblack stained timber would be used for the entrance woodwork and doors.
