The conversion, redevelopment and extension of Osney Power Station to a Centre of Executive Education to be run by Said Business School. Additional information. (Amended plans and reports)

OCS has previously commented on this application and we stand by what we said then. As to the daylight/sunlight issues and the effect of the guidelines about 45 degrees and 25 degrees, we  think that there seem to be some confusion about their interpretation. In our view trimming 1.2m off the new parts of the building does not make it compliant with these guidelines. We suggest further consideration of these issues before granting planning permission.
