AN APPEAL has been lodged against Oxford City Council 's refusal of planning permission for homes in Windmill Road, Headington.

Earlier this year, the council turned down an application to build a two-storey bblock of five flats and three terraced homes at the rear of 82, 84 and 86 Windmill Road.

It said the flats plan was “overdevelopment” and the two parking spaces proposed for the houses were inadequate.

But developer Ifor Rhys Ltd has now appealed to the Planning Inspectorate, which will hold an inquiry.
