Council opens further consultation on further information on the environmental statement for Castle Mill student flats

Published: Wednesday, 2nd September 2015

Earlier this year the City Council requested additional information from the University of Oxford on their voluntary Environmental Statement (ES).

Officers have checked the additional ES submission for registration and published the additional information for further consultation. (Application Number: 14/03013/CONSLT)

The original ES has already been the subject of full consultation. This latest consultation is on the additional information alone.

The Council has extended the consultation period from 2 September 2015 to 14 October 2015 to allow for the holiday period, compared with the statutory period of 21 days.

During this period officers will also take advice from our legal counsel and environmental consultants.

Consultation details are given on the Council’s planning web page. We will be advising parties who have expressed an interest as well as notifying those covered through the Council’s consultation processes.

After the consultation officers will report to the West Area Planning Committee, including recommendations on the discharge of the outstanding planning conditions. It is anticipated that this report will be submitted in late 2015 or early 2016.
