Appeal on dog track decision

Oxford Greyhound Stadium

Oxford Greyhound Stadium

First published in News

Developers hoping to demolish the city’s greyhound stadium and build 220 homes on the site have appealed after city councillors rejected the scheme last Wednesday.

The Galliard Homes’ plan for the Sandy Lane site was rejected by the East area planning committee.

The developer has now appealed against the decision to the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.

No-one from Galliard Homes was available for comment.

Not unexpected. Both sides always go to appeal these days.

It renders local planning arrangements pointless.

Hopefully greyhound racing will never return. The reason I say that is detailed in new 155-page publication free to access on the internet: Behind the Lights, the Tote and the Non-starters. It is packed with facts and figures the industry is desperate to keep hidden from the public.

ZoonPolitikon...it's not just used as a dog track, look it up. There was speedway, go karting, dance studios, a market, and other business operate there.The facts cant be hidded very well if we can access them on the internet! Doh.
As for the appeal, this now will go to big fat Eric Pickles who don't give a stuff about local decisions even though the Tory toff party say they do.So the homes will be built. so much for the Tory propaganda about letting local people and councils make decisions
