2 Whitson Place Oxford OX4 3DD

23 November 2018

 Change of use from dwellinghouse (Use Class C3) to a large House in Multiple Occupation (Sui Generis). Provision of bin and cycle storage.

 Oxford Civic Society concurs with the report from the County Council which recommends rejection of this application on the grounds that

‘… refusal of this application [should be] on highway grounds due to the impact the development will have on existing residents of Whitson Place.’

OCS notes that there is inadequate provision of cycle storage given the occupancy of the property is potentially nine persons.  The applicant must be required to address this omission prior to any consideration of approval for the change of use.
