A DECISION on two key planning applications in Oxford will have to wait after they were pulled from a meeting at the last minute.

A2Dominion wants to knock down homes in Gibbs Crescent and rebuild them, while doing the same for former homeless shelter Simon House in Paradise Street.

But the city council's West Area planning committee was told that the applications would not be discussed as expected.

The city council's head of planning had recommended it was not discussed on Tuesday evening.
