Hundreds comment on West Way plans

thisisoxfordshire: The West Way shopping centre The West Way shopping centre

Hundreds of residents have submitted their comments about the £100m planned revamp of West Way shopping centre in Oxford.

The six-week public consultation on the proposals officially closed yesterday, but Vale of White Horse District Council will continue to accept comments until April 30 because developer Doric Properties has not yet submitted its environmental impact assessment.

Doric submitted plans to knock down West Way and Elms Parade shops plus Field House sheltered housing, to build an extended shopping and cinema complex.

The assessment is a study to assess the impact the plans on Botley.

The council is due to make a decision by May 1.

I agree start building as soon as possible. It's a shame that so many of the NIMBY protestors are against it because they do not want the students, which is quite laughable considering the amount of academics amongst them.

While they do need a new shopping centre I think the Oxford City council needs investigating with regards why every single piece of land in Oxford is being given to students that do not even live in Oxford they only come to study. and what is the agreement they have with Oxford University. I am going to make an official complaint to the Parliamentary Health Ombudsman against the Council I think they need to be investigated because in my opinion something illegal is defiantly going on here between them and those University people. Hopefully one day someone will hack into the university computers or the council computers and find out what's going on, anyone interested.
