DIDCOT is to get a new hand car wash and valet service this year.

The car wash will be located at the Marlborough Club on The Broadway.

A proposal for the businesses submitted to Vale of White Horse District Council states that it will be better than mechanised car washes as it is more ‘environmentally-friendly’, vehicles will be cleaned more thoroughly, with less damage and it will generate human interaction between the employee and customer.

Very little will be built including two large tent structures under which the valeting will be carried out, and one smaller matching tent to be used as a customer waiting space.

A Mr Seyrek was granted planning permission for the operation last year.

He said pressure washers that will be used to clean cars will use recycled water as 4-stage water recycling units will be placed in the ground along with the correct drainage and plumbing.

There were public concerns about traffic, but a single-file design for traffic movement will guide the vehicles into the correct location from The Broadway.
