Planned development for cityOxfordshire County Council has quelled reports that a link road between the M40 and Oxford Road in Banbury has been agreed. The council has been quick to point out that the road was merely a suggestion and that nothing had been put on paper. It said if such a road was incorporated in future plans, it would be at least 2016 before it could be built.A university college has bought the Acland Hospital for £10.75m to develop cheap accommodation for students who currently have to pay for expensive private housing in Oxford. It will initially use the 1.7-acre site for research and teaching, as well as study bedrooms for 100 students. But it plans to redevelop the Banbury Road-based hospital to provide double the amount of accommodation.

Description:The city of Oxford is beautiful, its as simple as that. Aside from the architecture there are some great places to shop and the combined student population is pretty high so there are plenty of student friendly places.There are pubs galore for the student and tourists. Given that most of the colleges have fairly limited social facilities for late nights, the local area is all there is for real night owls.
