Residents Views

The Pullen’s Lane Association is particularly seeking its members’ views on the change of use to Use Class C2 (see above) and the impact of the new residential block at the western end of the site. However, it is a significant development and we would welcome feedback on any aspect of it so that a response by the association can be suitably informed.

The Headington Hill Umbrella Group (HHUG) which covers the four local roads (Pullen’s Lane, Harberton Mead, Jack Straws Lane (South) and Fielden Grove is also  expecting to make a response.
