Exciting news at TOSP

The Oxford Science Park has started work on the development of three new buildings to the west side of the Park. These buildings will provide much needed office and laboratory space for existing companies on the Park as well as attracting new life science companies from around the world.

To support these developments, the Park is working in collaboration with SSE to improve local infrastructure to ensure adequate power capacity, not just for these new buildings but for the wider area.

Planning permission has been granted for a new primary substation to be constructed on land adjacent to Grenoble Road and opposite the entrance to the Oxford Science Park (see plan below).

Through our initial site investigations, we have found that the land has been heavily used for fly tipping over many years.  Working with SSE, the Park will clear this land, reduce the levels to enable efficient construction and access for the new substation and clear trees currently within the allocated site area. This will be noticeable as you pass by the area over the next two weeks.

To improve the biodiversity quality of the land and the area post construction, The Oxford Science Park has committed to planting over 500 new whip trees to offset any loss resulting from the initial clearance.

We expect the SSE works to be completed by June 2025.

Thames Water Utilities Limited is also working on the outside perimeter of the Science Park to install a new foul water rising main, connecting Littlemore pumping station to the Grenoble Road sewerage treatment works. These works are due to be completed in July 2024.

We apologise for any inconvenience during these works as it will be necessary at times to install traffic management measures on Grenoble Road.
