Sir, Outline application for means of access is being sought for the Warneford Hospital, Warneford Meadow and Park Hospital sites for 510 residential units, or 2,350 student units, plus 2,900 sq m of research, administration or academic floor space (City planning applications, August 11). Thank goodness there are no traffic problems in Headington, otherwise this might be regarded as a sick joke when added to the large expansion of numerous hospitals and Oxford Brookes University taking place.
