Our OX Place Team

Here at OX Place, we’re on the side of people in Oxford. Created to provide genuinely affordable, high-quality homes in the City, we’re working hard to deliver.

Get to know our OX Place team

Home is about more than where we go at the end of our day. It’s an extension of who we are. Where we choose to live is part of our identity. For too long people from Oxford have been priced out of living here and we’re taking a completely different approach to housing for the people of our city.

Oxford is known around the world as a place of excellence and the work we’re doing at OX Place supports and extends the city’s reputation. The OX Place team is dedicated to developing the highest quality, most sustainable homes available at prices local people can afford, whether to rent from the Council or buy through shared ownership.
