Core Strategy concerning planning applications

The request was successful.

Dear Oxford City Council,

Since the adoption of the Core Strategy in March 2011 regarding planning applications, could you advise the following:

1. On how many occasions has a planning application been approved despite not meeting the Core Strategy guidelines ?

2. On the occasions (if any) where a planning application has been approved despite not meeting Core Strategy guidelines, what criteria were not met, and what were the circumstances to it being approved nevertheless ?

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Oxford City Council
