Council Trying To Buy One That Has Been Vacant For 27 Years.
Info Day for Botley Westway Improvements
Plans for the redevelopment of the Westway shopping centre in Botley are being discussed later.
North Hinksey Parish Council is hosting a meeting at St Peter and St Paul's Church in Botley at 7:30pm where residents will be able to meet with Vale of White Horse officers to ask questions and find out more information.
Under plans to spruce up the centre, the Botley Baptist Church could be moved to another site and replaced with community facilities similar to those at Seacourt Hall.
Councillor Elaine Ware, cabinet member for economy at Vale of White Horse District Council, said:
"The Westway is an important community hub for the people of Botley and the local area, which means it's crucial that we hear the views of local residents on how this area is developed.
"Hopefully plenty of people will attend the meeting or take part in the forthcoming consultation so there can be a positive and constructive conversation on how we can help bring a new lease of life to the area."
Councillor Eric Batts said it's time for improvements to be made;
"Westway has served Botley very well over the years, but it is in need of renovation. I'm sure residents will be eager to have their say on how the development continues.
"This is the beginning of a very important process for the future of our area and I urge people to get involved so we can ensure we make the best decisions for Botley and the parish of North Hinksey as a whole."
People can give their views in an online survey between Wednesday 29 February and Wednesday 28 March at www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/haveyoursay .
Alternatively, they can contact the consultation officer on 01235 547614 for a paper copy or to give their views in a different way.
