A MASTERPLAN for the Jericho boatyard will be considered by Oxford city councillors next week.

The city council has created the planning document to try to bring an end to the years of uncertainty over the future of the derelict site next to St Barnabas Church.

It will be discussed by the council's executive board on Wednesday at the Town Hall, in St Aldate’s, at 5pm.

Council officers have recommended that the plan should be approved.
