243/21.DECISION NOTICES RECEIVED FROM SOUTH OXFORDSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL

Noted by Members

244/21.ENFORCEMENT CASES – UPDATED LIST ATTACHED

(i) To note updated Enforcement Case List

Noted by Members

(ii) Update on 58 St. Mary’s Street

The Administration Officer reported on an email from South and Vale’s Enforcement Development Management Team Leader:

“Our last notes were that the owner had liaised with our conservation team and had their agreement to undertake urgent repair works to the frontage and roof                                  replacing elements with appropriate traditional materials. Have the works been completed? Do have further issues to report?”

Councillor Keats- Rohan reported that the dormer window on the roof is even more dangerous as the wooden frame has deteriorated exposing more of the single-glazed glass from the underneath

Actions: The Administration Officer:

  • Relay concerns over the lack of progress to the frontage, roof and dormer window back to Enforcement Team
  • Write a letter to the owner of 58 St. Mary’s Street to ask about Public Liability Insurance should the glass fall out of the window

(iii) Update on Fraggle Farm

The administration Officer had not received a report from the Enforcement  Consultant working on this case, but reported to Members that to date no                        application had been received regarding the use and buildings so enforcement action was being recommended by the Consultant at South and Vale

245/21.FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS

  •  Upgrade on Cholsey Waste Water – Rolling item
  • Site B Representatives – visit in progress for 18th October 2021
  • Site E Representatives
