This is what Planning Minister, Nick Boles, has to say about it

"I have to say that nothing quite prepares you for the awfulness of it until you see it in situ.
I mean, it is as if somebody had built the Maze Prison on the edge of Oxford. I think this is one of the worst examples of design that I have seen in a year-and-a-half as Planning Minister. And the process that the city council followed, I think, is one of the worst examples of a planning process that I have heard about."

Even Councillor Bob Price admits they're ugly!

"Dear Resident, You wrote to me recently about the graduate flats that have been constructed on Roger Dudman Way. I do, of course, understand very well why many people are distressed about the effect of these buildings on the views from Port Meadow looking south towards the city. They are ugly and look out of place. The design of the development is clearly poor and fails to take adequate account of the surrounding area...."
