The tree in the Old Gaol grounds is glowing.
I entered the riverside path from the Bridge Street entrance, and took a picture of Abingdon Bridge with the leaves of the tree round me.
I also took a picture of The Old Gaol Dental Surgery.
The Vale of White Horse District Council recently allowed the application for unit 5B to become a dental clinic rather than a restaurant.
Abingdon Town Council had recommend refusal. They said The original approval for the Old Gaol development was on the basis of a mixed use development including an A3 restaurant in Unit 5B. The mixed use is important to enable visitors continued access to this part of the Old Gaol site.
A neighbour said the proposal is preferable to a restaurant. Would like to ensure adequate noise insulation.
Friends of Abingdon said the proposed change of use … raises privacy issues for patients …. Concerned that the proximity of Treatment Room 1 to the riverside path could result in pressure to close the Bridge Street entrance to the gardens.
In reply to newcomer’s comment, from Brian. I would like to add the photo above taken 24/07/2007 with the caption – ‘we had one, the developer removed it, the planners conditioned it to be replaced !!!’
