A NEW community market could be launched in West Way if a planned £100m rebuild goes ahead.
An organiser of farmers’ markets in Headington and Summertown has said he would not start up a market in West Way as it is now.
But he said he could if the planned redevelopment in Botley goes ahead.
The backing for the plan, which would see the markets held in a new community square, is a boost for the developers after about 2,000 people signed a petition opposing the scheme.
And it comes as leaders at Botley Baptist Church, which will also be rebuilt, threw their weight behind the West Way scheme.
Jack McLeod has managed Headington Farmers’ Market since 2011. He said the planned new community square – dubbed a piazza by the developers – is very attractive to his market traders.
