    The Westgate Alliance is planning to spend £400m redeveloping the shopping centre.
  • Once complete it would have a 10,000sq m John Lewis store as well as cafes, restaurants, shops and a cinema.
  • Plans to redevelop the shopping centre have been in the pipeline for 25 years but three previous schemes have been unsuccessful.

"This development is going to do substantial harm to Oxford's heritage"..... How exactly is it going to do that? Unless the old Westgate and car park are part of it's heritage?

I can only see positives to this going ahead personally.

I don't understand why people can't come by rail to this new development. It will be choked by buses according to current proposals.
