Three applications within the broader Headington area this week:
We have received notification that the JR Hospital intends to land emergency helicopters at the South-East corner of their site (adjacent to Osler Road) for the next two years, due to works to upgrade their existing helipad, which is across the car park from Ambleside Road.
They advise typical traffic is 13 landings per month (so around three a week), and that after-midnight landings happen but are rare, with three in the last year.
The City Council maintains a regular rotation of graffiti removal teams, visiting two wards per month. The latest schedule shows that Quarry will next get a cleanup in July, followed by Headington in August.
In addition to these thorough cleans, they also remove offensive graffiti more promptly: in that case you can find instructions to report on the City Council’s website.
Three applications in Headington Ward this week:
- A variation on existing permission at 20 Osler Road
- A request to use 143 Windmill Road as a House in Multiple Occupancy (HMO)
- A request to increase the number of tenants at an existing HMO, 123 Headley Way, exceeding use-class C4 (up to 6 residents)
Three applications in Headington this week, all at the JR Hospital site! The City’s planning website as out of action at the time of writing, but once it’s back in action you can search for them by code:
