Green light for Clarendon 2 building!

8 June 2011

We are very pleased to announce that the Oxford City Council Planning Committee has granted planning permission for the Clarendon Laboratory 2 (CL2) building with a unanimous vote, subject to ratification by the full Council.

The Councillors recognised that this project represents a crucial element in Oxford Physics' plan to upgrade its accommodations and bring its experimental facilities to 21st century standards. Their comments were full of praise for the outstanding design produced by the architectural firm Hawkins Brown, for the excellent employment of the available space and for the low environmental impact and carbon footprint of the building.

A fundraising campaign is already under way to raise the £35M cost of the CL2 building.
