Mural working party for A34 bridge: we are looking for members of the public to join councillors working with local artists on planning a mural for the main entrance to Botley: the pedestrian, cycle and traffic underpass under the A34 on Botley Road. This is your chance to get involved in transforming a tired and drab area into a vibrant gateway to Botley and the west of Oxford, helping to improve the perception of our community and cheer up commuters, locals and visitors for many years to come.
This is one part of a public art project for the West Way Square shopping and residential area made possible by Section 106 money earmarked for public art in and around the new development. The Parish Council will soon be announcing the artists and community engagement project for this public art and the mural project is likely to be the first part of the project. We need enthusiastic people to help us work with an artist, the public, and Highways England, and to help fundraise for more money to extend and maintain the project for years to come.
To get involved or find out more contact Councillor Laura Jones.
