March 2024

Following the granting of a full planning permission in relation to Motor Museum proposal at Enstone Airfield near Chipping Norton as noted in our Sept 2023 news item, a second approval has been given on the site for an alternative proposal.  In 2021 West Oxfordshire District Council had granted planning permission in outline for the museum project.  The MAMDCL development team had initially put forward a full application to bring forward the details of the project- it was that application that was granted in September 2023.  However, in March 2023 the development team had also lodged a reserved matters application with WODC following up on the original outline planning permission.  That reserved matters consent has now been approved by WODC, meaning that there are now alternative proposals with extant planning permission.
