A day in the life

The framework ensures that this ambitious programme continues, and is accelerated where most needed, with strategic focus to enable the urgent recovery of the West End and begin the longer-term transformation of the area.

STEP 2: April 2019

ECOSYSTEM OF USERS AND USES The Oxford Street District is a place for people, and the framework and delivery approach have been developed with the district’s users in front of mind. By considering the district’s elements in the context of a typical user’s experience, the framework and delivery plan establish people and uses as central to the evolving ecosystem of the area. Close study and understanding of these will remain central to the design process as individual projects come forward.
