WORK continues to rumble on at the Westgate multi-storey car park.

Developers have said there will be no “big moment” when it all comes down, but Andy Menary, manager at the nearby St Ebbe’s Church, said he has watched the slow demolition every day as he walks to work.

Mr Menary said: “It is certainly opening up some new skylines.

“We are hopeful that the scheme will be a good thing for us ultimately, because it should mean lots of extra footfall to the area.”

Improvements to Pennyfarthing Place, near the church, have also been announced by Oxford City Council and the Westgate Oxford Alliance, as part of the redevelopment of the Westgate Centre.

Mr Menary added: “We hope it makes it a place that people want to be, because ultimately that is also better for St Ebbe’s.”
