attrocious reporting from OM ... Oxford City Council own the priory, the slum landlord does not own it, hes the leaseholder - with responsibilities to ensure the grade 11 listed building is 'fit for purpose' , which is something he is yet to do
OCC and Firoka go hand in hand @Sarge

Round these parts that would have had a "mysterious fire" a long time ago.
Listed buildings in the City tend to spontaneously combust .........

Mmm. No date yet (not holding my breath)
Also external facade only.
I bet the inside is pretty good....
No plans to use it then I assume

No. Firoka has submitted plans for the facade repair and may start work soon. We're back where we were before Firoka persuaded the council to allow the hotel to be started then opened because they were negotiating with Firoka for a full repair that would make the building usable.

That's news. If work actually starts, that will be big news. Odds?
