The council said Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s earlier plans to make a stretch of Oxford Street between Orchard Street and Oxford Circus traffic free were now “off the table for good”.

Council planning member Richard Beddoe outlined new plans that would see WCC invest £50m a year for the next three years.

Jace Tyrrell, chief executive of the, described plans for a central piazza at Oxford Circus and a revamped “gateway to the West End” at Marble Arch as “remarkable”.
