Rear Of 110 Magdalen Road Oxford OX4 1RQ

Refurbishment for use as commercial kitchen (Use Class B1/B8) including re-roofing, insertion of 9No. rooflights to side roofslopes, and installation of flue duct to front elevation for extraction and ventilation. Alterations to windows and doors. Formation of bin store. 

We would comment that it is disappointing that although most of the proposed works will have a beneficial effect on the appearance and character of the buildings affected, and on the immediate neighbourhood, it appears that no attempt at all has been made to disguise or mitigate the unfortunate appearance of the new ventilation duct. Consent should be conditional on agreement of a satisfactory means of ameliorating the appearance of this duct.
