We have been informed by Oxford City Council that a Planning Enforcement Notice has been served on the developers of the Mews Block at 1 Quarry High Street requiring that it be demolished and the site cleared. The notice was served on 5th January and will come into effect on 9th February. The owner then has 6 months to complete demolition and a further month to remove the rubble.
The owner can appeal before the notice comes into effect, in which case residents will have an opportunity to have their say. We will keep you updated.
Friends of Quarry have campaigned hard for over 2 years, with the support of our local councillors, residents, the Oxford Civic Society and our MP to highlight and represent the extent of planning breaches at this development to the City Planning Authorities. We are pleased that they have recognised the severity of these and are now taking action.
