In Tit. XIV, Sect. II, cl. 1 (Statutes,
1997, p. 110), after `Professorship of Morbid Anatomy'

`Norman Collisson Professorship of Musculo-skeletal
Science'.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is

1 In Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 1, Schedule, concerning
official members of faculty boards
(Statutes, 1997, p. 244), under Clinical

2 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. B,

2 Voting on Special Resolution
allocating a site for the new building for Chemistry

Explanatory note

Chemistry's present buildings do not meet modern
standards for teaching and research. A report by outside
consultants has concluded that the Dyson Perrins building
could not be cost-effectively modernised and that a new
building of about 17,000 sq.m. floor area should be
constructed on the site of 2--4 South Parks Road to
provide new laboratory facilities. The Dyson Perrins
building (less its teaching facilities), 9 Parks Road,
and about 3,000 sq.m. of the Inorganic Chemistry
Laboratory would become available for other uses, and the
present programme of upgrading Chemistry's remaining
buildings would continue within the funding
available.

The University has now completed negotiations with the
Diocese of Oxford to purchase St Mary's Vicarage at 12
Mansfield Road and to sell part of the car park at 30
Norham Gardens for the construction of a new vicarage.
The site of the Vicarage together with that of the car
park at 2--4 South Parks Road is about 4,800 sq.m. and a
recent feasibility study reported that a laboratory
building of about 17,000 sq.m. could be constructed on
this area. Planning consent for the car park expires on
30 November 1998 and the City Council has made it plain
that it is not in its transport strategy to permit
parking on this site to continue in the longer term.

The following resolution allocates a site for the new
building. (The 1970 resolution cited read: `That the
gardens of 2 and 3 South Parks Road and the site of 4
South Parks Road shall be allocated for use as a
university car park to be administered by the Delegates
of the Science Area.' The responsibilities of the
delegates in connection with car parking were
subsequently transferred to the Committee on University
Security.)

Text of Special Resolution

That Special Resolution (2) of Congregation of 30 June
1970 be rescinded and that the site of the University Car
Park at 2--4 South Parks Road, together with that of 12
Mansfield Road, be allocated to the Department of
Chemistry for the construction of a research laboratory
of about 17,000 sq.m. floor area.
