Matilda House, Oxford
Scheme Summary: 37 bedroom supported living facility with ancillary office and meeting space
Site Status: Completed
Cantay Estates acquired the site, formerly part of a B&Q garden centre, in 2016 with an extant planning permission for 4 one and two bedroom houses. Planning permission for a 39 bedroom student accommodation facility was granted by Oxford City Council in 2017. Subsequently, Cantay Estates was approached by a third party seeking to purchase the scheme for use as a supported living facility for vulnerable homeless people connected to Oxford. Planning permission for a revised scheme bespoke to this use was obtained in early 2018.
Construction on site began in spring 2018 and the completed building was handed over in September 2019 to the purchaser and operator A2 Dominion Homes. The building is now fully occupied.
