We need to build new houses in places that will enable people to move towards zero-carbon lifestyles, reduce car dependency and promote travel. Our VeloCity multidisciplinary team’s proposal for new housing in the OxCam corridor won the National Infrastructure Commission’s competition seeking ideas about where to place 1M new homes. Our holistic approach located new development within a 6 mile radius of existing and proposed transport interchanges and identified development opportunities to revitalising communities. The proposal aims to grow and link villages to create a supporting network of services that preserve their rural character. The team have been commissioned by Blenheim Estate to realise a pilot project within the estate and surrounding villages. The first opportunity site has been submitted for planning.
