Blackbird Leys

Peabody & JTP

Entrant's Summary: Unanimously approved at Planning Committee in August 2023, Blackbird Leys is a high-density, social housing scheme that provides 294 affordable, low-energy homes within several infill sites across Blackbird Leys, in a joint venture between Oxford City Council and Peabody. Alongside apartments and family housing, the proposals include a new Community Centre, retail spaces for local vendors, a public square and a variety of new green public spaces. With continuous and active engagement spanning years, local people were invited to shape the proposals every step of the way, to ensure they will be positively impacted by the transformation of their estate.
