Bellway has launched a consultation for the Water Eaton site (also known as PR6a). The consultation period is open from 07 December and will run until 20 January 2023.
The consultation is a chance to see how the project has evolved since the design development consultation this summer and the initial consultation held in Autumn 2021.
Bellway is inviting people to provide further feedback and comments on the proposals before the formal consultation when the application is submitted.
In September, Bellway acquired the land from Christ Church to bring the site forward for development. The site is south of Oxford Parkway station and Park and Ride, adjacent to the northern edge of Oxford at Cutteslowe and east of Oxford Road.
The plans for Water Eaton include up to 800 homes, of which 50 per cent will be affordable housing, as well as a primary school and local centre, including retail space, a café/restaurant and a local community centre.
Two drop-in events will be held where people can learn more about our plans, meet the project team and ask their questions. These will be held on:
- Saturday 10 December from 10.00am to 1.00pm at Cutteslowe Pavilion Hall, OX2 8ES
- Wednesday 14 December from 3.00pm to 6.00pm at the North Oxford Association Community Centre, Diamond Place, Summertown, OX2 7DP
An online event will also take place from 6.00pm to 7.30pm on Monday, 12 December. You can register to attend the webinar here.

Fergus Thomas, strategic land director (Central) at Bellway, said: “We’re committed to delivering the best possible scheme and continuing to work closely with Christ Church to develop our plans for Water Eaton.
“A development that provides much-needed new homes for Oxford while working carefully with the local environment and supporting the community.”
He added: “We will carefully consider all the feedback we receive to this consultation, along with the findings from our technical studies, as we refine our proposals, develop an illustrative masterplan and fix the development parameters for the project.”
Bellway is expected to submit an outline planning application to Cherwell District Council in early 2023.
