Former Public Conveniences Gents St Giles' Oxford Oxfordshire:

8 February 2019

Change of use to short let accommodation (Use Class C1). Erection of 2no. glass canopies over the existing stair wells, restoration of the existing railings to create 2 x 1-bed suites.

It would have been helpful if the glazed entrances (‘glass canopies’) to the former public conveniences now planned were more clearly illustrated, given English Heritage’s comments on the sensitivity and importance of this location in St Giles. Assessment of the impact of these proposals is difficult in view of the inadequacy of the representations.
