THE £20m redevelopment scheme for Jericho boatyard has been recommended for approval by city planners.

Oxford City Council’s west area planning committee will meet next Tuesday to consider the scheme.

The plans include a public square between St Barnabas Church and the Oxford Canal, bordered by a community centre, boatyard, nursery, restaurant and 22 homes.

A decision was due at last month’s meeting of the committee, but it was pulled from the agenda the day before so that councillors could carry out a site visit.

The application will be considered at 6.30pm, in Town Hall, St Aldate’s.
