Does this need approval or is it already decided ?

The School is currently located in Merton Street Oxford, but in the near future will move to the University's new Radcliffe Observatory Quarter,once the new building, designed by Herzog and De Meuron, is completed.


Hmmmm..

In answer to your question. Yes. It has permission and will be built at a cost of £101,000,000, with £78 million coning from Russian businessman??? Blavatnik himself.

so it's fine for Ox Uni to do what they want and dramatically alter the entire shape and culture of an area of the city. But after about 13 years we still don't have a new shopping centre underway or an end to the nightmare of city centre parking and transport.

Who gives a toss what OU do? once they've finally built on every piece of land and driven all tax payers out of the city so there's no services left for their precious students will anyone be left to voice an opinion?
