A consultation period for a planning policy which could shape the future of the West Way shopping centre in Botley will begin next month.

Vale of White Horse District Council has employed architecture firm BDP to produce a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which will be used to guide developer Mace, which is due to put forward fresh plans at the end of the year.

The move follows unsuccessful £100m proposals last year, which were initially recommended by Vale planning officers.

Residents’ views will contribute to the document. The consultation will run from August 21 to September 25.
