Change of Use at 120-122 High Street Oxford

JPPC successfully secured planning permission and listed building consent for the change of use and associated works to the basement, ground floor and mezzanine levels of the former bank (A2) at 120-122 High Street, Oxford, to a restaurant (A3) and the use of upper floors to provide private residential accommodation (C3). In their determination of the proposal, Oxford City Council concluded the proposal would make a more efficient use of the previously developed site. Furthermore, the less-than-substantial harm that would be caused was considered to be sufficiently mitigated by appropriate and high-quality design and outweighed by the resulting public benefits including the enhancements and improvement to the special architectural character of the building.
