Witney people want green space

A petition started by the group Action to Improve Marriotts (AIM), calling for green space to be preserved at the Marriots Close site, has so far been signed by more than 4,000 people.

The site, formerly home to Witney Town football club and an old council highways depot, is to be developed by Simons Development and turned into a mixture of houses, shops, restaurants, a miltiplex cinema and a multi-storey car park.

It is believed that the plans show a public square, but AIM say that at least one acre of green open space should be retained.

Planners predict that work could start on the development as early as next year.
