plans

Under the new plans, costing 13m per year, the business school at Wheatley will move to Gipsy Lane as early as the 2016/17 academic year.Patrick Coulter, chairman of residents' group Headington Action, said the university had offered to meet residents.He said: "Our main concerns would be traffic and parking."We would want them to update their sustainable travel plan as a result of this."Oxford City Council leader Bob Price said: "We will be working closely with the university on the planning, transport and housing implications."It has not yet been decided where the school of technology will be moved.Student accommodation which financially sustains itself is expected to stay at Wheatley for the time being.The university aims for the move to result in no compulsory job losses among its 400 facilities staff, Mr Large said, many of whom work across multiple campuses.This is expected to be achieved cheap mlb jerseys by moving those at Wheatley to other campuses as jobs become available, and ceasing to hire, allowing a gradual turnover of staff to reduce numbers. Academic staff will be relocated with their departments.Yesterday university Unison branch chairman Jon Appleton said union representatives had met with university management to discuss the plan.He said: "We have known this was a possibility for some years, but we have only recently been told about this decision."We will be looking for more clarity as early as possible on this, but so far we understand there will not be a huge impact on facilities staff because a significant number of students will for now remain at Wheatley."Mr Large said no "exit strategy" for Wheatley was decided yet, but all options including a sale of the land or leasing it would be considered.In 2010 the site was estimated to be worth up to 24m.It has been considering since 2010 how to reduce its estate by 15 per cent for 2020 and is also committed to reducing carbon emissions.Mr Large said redeveloping the Wheatley campus which harbours buildings from the 1960s and 70s would be too expensive.The site is also understood to be the least popular among students, most of whom travel there by bus from Oxford to attend lectures and seminars.Brookes on the move? Hopefully to somewhere else in the UK which needs employment and has masses of cheap, cheap nba jerseys empty housing which the homeless and low paid don't need! It would also mean that the grossly over priced private sector housing and rental market in Oxford would deflate, and then let ordinary people afford lower rents and cheaper housing? The real downside to the move from the former Lady Spencer Churchill Teacher training college is that the people (especially young people) of Wheatley and places along the Brookes Bus route will suffer from no longer having a good bus service. Can only be a matter of time before the former Westminster College on Hinksey Hill is also closed down and probably turned into luxury flats and homes.Brookes on the move?
