A planning inspector has turned down an appeal by developers to build a large block of flats on the former boatyard site in Jericho.

In August, Spring Residential appealed against the city council's decision to refuse the plan to build 54 flats and a boat repair berth on the former Castle Mill boatyard site.

Oxford author Philip Pullman led a silent protest against the development before the week-long inquiry at the town hall in August.

Today planning inspector Ava Wood dismissed the appeal.
