Frontier Estates is planning 153 student rooms in Jack Straw’s Lane in Headington, Oxford.

The developer has applied to Oxford City Council to demolish a former carpenters’ yard and five houses which currently occupy a 0.43-hectare site stretching through to Marston Road, and put up six new buildings of up to three storeys.

As well as the student accommodation, the development will include five private homes and 108 sq m of start up office space.

The scheme has been planned by Carter Jonas and designed by Broadway Malyan. Landscape architect is Macfarlane and Associates, transport consultant is Cole Easdon and ecology is by SLR.
