North West Bicester plans


Phase one

Detailed planning permission for 393 new homes and a renewable energy centre have been granted for Phase One of NW Bicester.

The proposals provide for outline consent for new employment, shopping, social and community facilities as well as a site for a primary school to form a local centre at the heart of a new eco-friendly ‘village’. Planning permission will unlock a contribution from the Homes and Communities Agency in the delivery of 119 affordable homes as part of this phase of development.

Job creation is a priority in the construction of Phase One.  Job opportunities are being identified in cooperation with the Job Club Team.

The application for the development was submitted by Barton Wilmore, planning and design consultancy on behalf or P3Eco (Bicester) Ltd, together with its development partner A2Dominion, leading architect-planners, masterplanners - Farrells, masterplanners and architects, with support from project engineering consultants Hyder Consulting.

NW Bicester Masterplan

A Masterplan is a comprehensive plan intended to guide growth and development of a community or region. It includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for the community’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use. It is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions.

The NW Bicester Masterplan is currently being developed and the aim is to provide a very high quality development.  This is an emerging Masterplan and as with all Masterplans will change and develop before reaching a final draft.  The Masterplan has been submitted and will be the subject of formal consultation in the Summer.  If you would like to be notified of the consultation, please email the Eco Bicester team and we will notify you of the consultation details. This will be followed by the submission of an outline planning application(s) for the site.

Further plans

Following approval of the Masterplan, further planning for NW Bicester will take place. This will mean the development of amenities, homes and green space in another area of the development. Before this development can take place the advanced infrastructure needs to be put in place, such as roads, electronic networks and broadband.
