The University of Oxford is holding two public consultation events on 17 and 18 July relating to its proposals to extend and refurbish the Tinbergen Building.

The University will be submitting a planning application to Oxford City Council for a two-storey extension to the southern end of the Tinbergen Building to provide additional space for chemistry teaching laboratories.

The development will also require the demolition of several disused outbuildings to the rear and one 'pod' on Level F to the front of the building. The University is seeking to undertake this work during the summer.

Set in the heart of the University’s Science Area, the Tinbergen Building was designed by Sir Leslie Martin and built in 1970. The University is taking the opportunity with this application to undertake internal refurbishment. It is also intending to replace some of the existing ‘pods’ that provide the stepped profile of the building and the addition of new pods to create further accommodation and to reflect the original design concept of the building.

As part of this process, the University is undertaking public consultation on the following dates:

  • Friday 17 July 4pm to 7pm
  • Saturday 18 July 2015 10am to 1pm

Both sessions will be held at The St Cross Building, St Cross Road, Oxford

Members of the University and the design team will be available to answer any queries you may have. We welcome feedback on the proposals prior to the University submitting a planning application for the development. A hard copy feedback form will be available at the consultation sessions and an online version will follow on the University’s website together with an electronic version of the display information. The University will review all feedback and will take it into account before details are finalised and the detailed planning application submitted.
