JR Hospital Helipad Works

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.

Planning applications w/c 5th Jan 2021

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:
