Hideous new buildings rising at the south end of Port Meadow Oxford

One hardly needs to prove that the pen-pushing creatures who scuttle behind the skirting-boards at Oxford City Council’s Planning Department are not fit and proper people to look after Oxford, but in case you are in doubt, see this photograph of the buildings now rising at the south end of Port Meadow.


I will write more about this in due course, but I thought you might like to see what the “officers” (and presumably the councillors) think is right for this most beautiful corner of Oxford.

The council apparently claims that no replies were received to the “consultation” – I put that in quotation marks partly because questions arise as to how well this was publicised and partly because “consultations” about Oxford planning matters are usually hole-in-corner affairs in which dead-eyed paper-shufflers pay lip-service to a concept they barely understand about beautiful places they are not equipped to understand or appreciate.

I will investigate further.
