SIXTEEN storage containers could stay put if Oxford City Council give the plans the green-light.

The metal shipping containers – which are about six-meters long and about two and a half meters wide – are used for storage on Mill Lane, in Marston.

The site is just off the A40 Northern Bypass.

In the application to keep the containers, planners explained: "The retention of the storage containers so not harm the neighbouring context and provide necessary additional storage within the curtilage of the site."
