Mace gets go ahead for Oxford shopping centre redevelopment

Mace gets go ahead for Oxford shopping centre redevelopment

Oxfordshire's Vale of White Horse Planning Committee has given the thumbs up to Mace's plans to redevelop the West Way shopping centre in Botley on the outskirts of Oxford.

Now Mace plans to start work on the project, designed by Make architects, early next year. They involve building 140 homes, a 122-bed hotel and 262 rooms for student's accommodation and a new community centre incorporating a public library.

The plans are based on 14,000 sq. ft. retail space for smaller shops rather than major new store developments. As part of Mace's new application, an agreement has been made with the Co-operative supermarket to keep it as part of the new centre.

The firm took over from developer Doric after its £100m plans were rejected by the local council back in 2014.
