Cantay Estates has acquired the site of a Co-op store in London Road, Headington in Oxford for an undisclosed sum.

The developer says a major multi-storey retail and student accommodation scheme is planned and the MidCounties Co-operative has said it plans to move back into the new retail which will be on the ground floor.

The Co-op will continue to trade in its current store on a short lease until work begins.

Architect for the new development is Penwarden Hale.
