First published in News

A £20m proposal for the redevelopment of the Castle Mill Boatyard, in Jericho, has been supported by Oxfordshire County Council.

But the authority said it wanted money from the developer to be spent on transport schemes, including cycle parking and hire, pedestrian improvements in the city centre and the Oxford station redevelopment. It has also requested a proposed swing bridge aligned with Cardigan Street be moved further south to align with Great Clarendon Street.

The plans are due to go before Oxford City Council next month.

As reported yesterday, the Canal and River Trust wants a fixed bridge instead.

Contribute to the station redevelopment- really?

Any investor able to contribute this much will want significant returns, wonder how many people pushed out of Jericho will be able to move back?
