The Oxford Civic Society have the following OBJECTIONS to this application to accommodate a large number of people in a 3-bed semi: it constitutes overdevelopment; work has already started, with operators working on the interior who say that they can go ahead; despite what the D+A statement says, no provision for bicycle storage or wheelie bins are to be seen on the plans; most of the many documents consist of complaints from neighbours in Templar Road who clearly feel intimidated by the plans for various reasons, despite the lengthy rationale given in the D+A statement.
