Planning and development | Oxfordshire County Council

Planning and development

The county council deals with applications relating to the management of waste and the extraction of minerals, and applications for our own operational use (such as schools and libraries).

District councils deal with applications for the building or extension of residential or commercial buildings, listed buildings, advertising or mobile masts, satellite dishes and independent schools. You can find the relevant district council here.
