Conduit Lane Update 22 Apr 2022 (Eynsham Village) A planning application to rebuild the damaged boundary wall -with comment deadline extended

An Oxfordshire County Council planning application 22/00636/FUL is now on view on the District Council website. It proposes demolition and rebuilding of stone boundary wall in a revised position to allow footpath widening.

The Heritage Statement has more details, amidst a wealth of interesting background information. Key points of the proposal are quoted below.

  • ‘6.1 carefully dismantle and reconstruct the section of wall at 5 Mill Street one metre to the south of its current location. The widening of the lane will allow for safer pedestrian and cycle use of the lane...
  • ‘6.2. mitigation measures in the form of the installation of an information board documenting the history of the site and the use of stone laid flush to the floor along the original path of the wall.’

Two category 'C' trees (of low quality, limited merit, etc) will be removed to implement the scheme. The Arboricultural Report proposes various protection measures for one (ash) tree of ‘moderate to high value’.

Deadline for comment is now 20 May
