Some of the first details about the new Oxford United stadium have been given in an address by club chief executive Tim Williams.

Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet noted an update by officers on Tuesday, April 18 about the club’s proposed move to council-owned land at The Triangle, south of the Kidlington roundabout.

It followed a video presentation published the previous day in which Mr Williams gave some new details of the club’s plans.

In the video, published on YouTube, Mr Williams said hotel and conferencing is planned within the stadium building, a partial green roof will be incorporated and a new footbridge will be built to link the site with Oxford Parkway station and the park & ride. There could be clean energy generation on site too.

Also under consideration is other commercial space including a gym, restaurant, offices, shared working space and education and healthcare facilities.

Trees will be added to the northern and southern edges of the site and those green spaces will be open to the public all year round.

The stadium will aim to be BREEAM Very Good.
