Demolition of garage. Erection a single storey commercial building to be used as a MOT test bay/ garage (Use Class Sui Generis) (part retrospective).

Oxford Civic Society would like to endorse the comments made by Old Temple Cowley Residents’ Association. In addition, there is mention in the application of a car wash as well as garage. It is not clear whether the premises were in use as a car wash before the new building was erected. It may be intended for use only for vehicles in the process of MOT testing and servicing. If this is not the case, the site seems unsuitable for a drive-in car wash because of the narrow access through residential streets. Any such change should be prevented through a condition.
