Terence O'Rourke picks up highly commended award at the recent Landscape Institute Awards

Barton Park masterplanners, Terence O’Rourke, wins “highly commended” award in the Urban and Masterplanning category at last week’s awards ceremony.

Award-winning planning and design consultancy Terence O'Rourke has won the “highly commended” award in the Urban and Masterplanning category at the 2016 Landscape Institute Awards for its work on Barton Park, Oxford.

Each year, the LI Awards are presented to landscape professionals in recognition of their outstanding work, and to encourage excellence. The Landscape Institute applauds those working on the most innovative projects to have shaped, restored and protected the natural and built environment. 

The unique and innovative Barton Park development is promoted by Barton Oxford LLP, a partnership between Grosvenor Developments Ltd and Oxford City Council. 

Its comprehensive design includes 885 new homes, a community hub with primary school, a mixed-use local centre, leisure and community facilities and strategic open space.

Barton’s landscape-led plan is fundamental to the successful delivery of a high quality and vibrant place for people to live and work.

Andy Sharpe, Director of Project Management - Strategic Land has commented “The aim at Barton Park is to deliver an exemplar project. This aspiration is now taking shape, with a significant proportion of the primary infrastructure implemented and construction of the first phase of housing starting on site.  As well as providing much needed housing in Oxford, the project will bring about tangible benefits to adjacent communities and create an integrated and sustainable new neighbourhood.

Richard Burton, Design Director at Terence O’Rourke, said: “We are delighted that our masterplanning and landscape design work on Barton Park has been recognised by this award. It is a testament to the consistently high quality and innovative results that our team delivers.

Barton Plans Gets Approval

Barton Plans Gets Approval

Plans for ambitious new neighbourhood at Barton get go-ahead
Oxford City Council and its development partner Grosvenor Britain and Ireland, which together form the Barton Oxford LLP, have secured a resolution to grant outline planning approval for their proposed new neighbourhood at Barton.

The approval relates to the proposed layout and scale of the new neighbourhood along with an environmental statement, design code and planning statement and means that up to 885 much needed new homes will be delivered alongside a new primary school. Support for additional educational provision is being negotiated as part of the Section 106 agreement for the scheme.

Councillor Bob Price, Leader of Oxford City Council, says: “The approval is a fantastic step forward in delivering a vibrant and exemplar new sustainable community in Oxford. We're hopeful that the new homes and community facilities will add value to those that live and work in the area and that the delivery of the park, community hub and retail facilities will act as a catalyst to improve the area's vitality and viability.”

Ed Skeates, Project Director at Grosvenor Britain and Ireland, added: "This is a very important milestone for the project and will provide much needed homes, together with sporting, retail and community facilities that will complement existing Barton, Northway and Headington.

“Great care has been taken with the design and layout, emphasising the link to existing and new parks and natural features to make this a very unique place. We will be taking the first phase to the market in the forthcoming months and the planning is a clear note of confidence to the market that this project is on track to deliver.”

Key features of this application are:

* Up to 885 new homes, 40% of which will be affordable homes;
* Retail space suitable for a food convenience store or similar;
* Two children’s play areas;
* A linear park, communal gardens and allotments;
* A new junction onto A40;
* A potential hotel; and
* A community hub that comprises:
   - A primary school;
   - A multi-use games area;
   - An adult sports pitch;
   - Two junior sports pitches;
   - A community sports pavilion; and
   - Multi-use community space which will complement the existing community centre.

The outline planning permission will see the creation of three distinctive areas, which will be integrated with the neighbouring communities and the wider city. The new primary school will sit at the heart of the community alongside a new sports pavilion.

Details of the design of the new homes and landscaping of the public open space will follow in a series of detailed planning applications from selected housebuilders.
