Hazardous materials held in Oxford University properties

The request was successful.

Dear University of Oxford,

In the light of the story in the Oxford Mail today - http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/1507533...

I think several questions need to be asked.

1) How many hazardous materials are stored in the old Oxford Power Station
2) Where are radioactive isotypes held
3) Why is there so little security at the old Oxford Power Station? I live a street away from Arthur Street and there appears to be no night watchman or security there
4) Is it sensible to site hazardous materials in a site so close to the community and subject to floods?
5) Oxford University is applying for planning permission to convert the old Oxford Power Station into accommodation for Said Business School MBAs. Local people are given to understand that the building is full of asbestos. What assurances can be given to local residents that the area won't be further contaminated if this planning application goes ahead?

Yours sincerely,

Mike Magee
