We’re seeking feedback on planning changes to breathe new life into Oxford Street and to secure the area’s creative and cultural future.

The proposed planning controls will allow for greater building heights and floor space in redevelopments if heritage is protected and new space for creative and cultural activities is provided.

The consultation is open until 5 November 2021.
