In 2015, U+I Group Plc signed an agreement to acquire the BSA’s site at Oxford Road, offering a unique opportunity for the BSA to upgrade its sporting facilities at Chesterton whilst delivering a dynamic retail-led development at Oxford Road.
The vision for St. Edburg’s Walk is to create a new vibrant retail and leisure space with strong links to the town centre. We aspire to attract big-name retailers that are not currently represented in the town or at Bicester Village.
St. Edburg’s Walk would create a new space for residents to relax and enjoy, with the opportunity for a range of leisure uses which could include food and drink outlets, a gym and other landscaped communal spaces.
With funding from the sale of the Oxford Road site, the BSA will be able to provide modern high-quality sporting facilities for grassroots and youth sport in Bicester. This means that more local people will be able to get involved with sports on a local level, utilising great facilities at a heavily subsidised rate.
