The University of Oxford is holding the first of two public consultations on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May to present its plans to redevelop the site of the Tinbergen Building in the University’s Science Area.

It proposes to demolish the existing building, on the corner of St Cross Road and South Parks Road, to make way for a new (provisionally named) Life and Mind Building. The building will accommodate the Department of Experimental Psychology and a new Department of Biology, combining the existing Departments of Plant Sciences and Zoology. 

As part of this redevelopment, various enabling works are proposed in relation to adjacent and adjoining buildings, as well as infrastructure works and the demolition of the current building. At the consultation event the University will set out its proposals for and invite feedback on these and on the emerging design concepts for the new building.
