A planning application was submitted on 18 Oct 2013 for a canal-side development in Banbury town centre being referred to as CQ2 (Castle Quay phase 2)
The proposal includes the demolition of the northern car park and the General Foods Sports and Social Club and includes the erection of a glazed canopy over the canal. This is sure to provoke a wide range of opinions from Banbury residents.
The planning application can be seen at http://www.publicaccess.cherwell.gov.uk/online-applications/caseDetails.do?action=dispatch&keyVal=MUV12NEM0K200&caseType=Application
The Banbury Guardian reported here back in August.
