Car wash set for go-ahead at old builders

thisisoxfordshire: Car wash set for go-ahead at old builders Car wash set for go-ahead at old builders

PERMISSION should be given for a former East Oxford builders’ merchants to be used as a temporary car wash, a council planning officer has said.

Oxford City Council’s Lisa Green has backed the plan for the former Travis Perkins site in Chapel Street.

The car wash is already in operation there.

It would open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday; 8am to 1pm, Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday and bank holidays.

A plan for student flats at the site had been given planning permission.

But that has expired and the council is considering a new proposal for offices and 31 flats.

Two East Avenue residents raised concerns to the council about water forming in the street outside East Oxford Primary School.

Another said it would impact on the “character of the area” and road safety.

But Oxfordshire County Council, which is responsible for roads, did not object about safety or raise concerns about excessive water.

The plan will be considered at the west area planning committee at the Town Hall, St Aldate’s on Tuesday from 6.30pm. The public can attend.

I am more concerned at the "cash business" that will pay cash in hand to the workers, and the owners declare a 5K profit a year whilst taking that in a week. Mr TAXMAN please take note.

OOPS, I forgot to add. Have the £60 full valet on your car, go and do your shopping on Cowley Road, and when you return offer your flexible friend as payment. You will be able to take your car away for free because they will not call the police as they only pay business rates, not income tax, class 2 and 4 and no employer NI as well. Sorry to pee on a new business, but we all have to pay our dues, and they DO NOT.
