The long-awaited lift for Headington Library is facing further delay because of the non-fulfilment of a planning condition.
Local residents have been shocked to see the exterior of the Bury Knowle House extension which looks completely out of keeping with the grade 2 listed building, and contacted us.
We have investigated this and found out that permission for the build was granted subject to a condition which requires an off white colour and for samples to be agreed. Oxfordshire County Council had not sought to discharge any conditions at all which is most odd.
A member of staff from Oxford City Council is meeting Capita on site to discuss acceptable paint colour and/or new rendering on Wednesday 6 August.
