JPPC Successful in Obtaining Outline Permission at Ambrosden

JPPC have been successful in seeking a grant of outline planning permission for five new dwellings on a site to the north-east of Merton Road in Ambrosden, contiguous with the built up area of the village.Although Cherwell District Council’s policies normally restrict housing to sites within the built up area of settlements, the Council does not presently have a five-year deliverable supply of housing sites, therefore relevant policies for housing cannot be considered up to date. In such instances, national planning policy (and the presumption in favour of sustainable development) weighs in favour of granting permission, despite the Council’s restrictive policies in respect of the location of housing. Officers granted outline planning permission on the basis that the proposal was considered to result in no harm to the character of the landscape or to designated heritage assets.

Permission Granted for Commercial Barn Conversion

Planning permission has been granted for an exciting new commercial development in a round-topped dutch barn just outside Oxford.

Vale of White Horse District Council agreed that the design would be an appropriate modern way to convert a relatively modern previously open-sided building, which will provide useful new office accommodation on the farm complex.

Permission Granted on Appeal for New Flats in Botley

JPPC has successfully convinced a Planning Inspector to grant planning permission for a scheme in Botley for 9 apartments in place of 2 outdated semi-detached houses.  The scheme is contemporary in design and would complement the block of apartments next door on Westminster Way.  Planning permission was refused by VOWHDC for 2 reasons the main one relating to a perceived shortfall of parking but the Inspector agreed that the amount of parking provided on site would not cause a serious problem elsewhere.
