University of Oxford Seeks To Sell ZPaper Mill Site

University of Oxford is now considering selling off its former paper mill land in Wolvercote, but without planning permission. The university had submitted a planning application for 190 homes to Oxford City Council. University spokesman Matt Pickles said: "The university is currently reviewing the proposed way forward in respect of the Wolvercote paper mill site. "As a result of the large number of objections submitted in response to the application, the university is considering whether or not it wishes to proceed with the application as submitted, whether it should amend it, or whether it should consider disposing of the site without resolving planning." He added that it hoped to make a decision on the potential sale next month.
