Please note when you make a comment on an application via Public Access you will receive a message explaining that your message has been truncated. This message is inaccurate - comments are not truncated. You are able to submit a comment of up to 6000 characters.
If you would like to find out about the decision of the application, please check the application file online here which will contain the decision notice and reasons for approving or refusing permission.
The majority of archived files that we hold from 2002 onwards are available electronically on our Public Access system. If the file is not on Public Access, a paper copy will be held at the Council. All files pre-2002 are kept as paper copies at the Council. To gain access to these files, please submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: Some users may experience problems when opening up documents in our online Public Access system. In some cases, documents will appear as blank pages.
If you experience this issue, please press F5 on your keyboard to refresh the page. This should solve the problem.
We hope to recify this issue for all users as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this may cause.
When you are submitting comments online via Public Access, please be aware that you will be timed out after 30 minutes of inactive use. There is no warning of this on Public Access and following customer feedback we have asked for it to be added to the Public Access page.
Once your comment has been submitted to Oxford City Council, it will be made available within 24 hours, not immediately as the Public Access system currently states. This is due to a programme error and will not interfere when submitting a comment.
