Oxford: Jericho restaurant applies to make changes to its building


Aug 9, 2022

A restaurant in Jericho has applied to the city council to make changes to its building.

Browns Bar & Brasserie at 5-11 Woodstock Road submitted a planning application to Oxford City Council on July 25.

The applicant, Mitchells & Butlers plc which owns the restaurant, has asked for permission to remove the existing extraction system and intake ductwork from the flat roof and replace it with newer ventilation.
