A NEW £150m motoring museum expected to attract up to 200,000 visitors a year could get the go-ahead today.

The Driving Centre, which would be based at Enstone Airfield, is fiercely opposed by several parish councils nearby, who worry about potentially increased traffic.

The project has been spearheaded by Peter W Mullin, an American classic car collector and philanthropist.

Residents have submitted 180 letters of objection, ahead of a planning meeting.

Cherwell District Council has said it is worried about the capacity of minor roads around the site to deal with traffic.

Other parish councils, such as Upper Heyford, say worries over traffic on roads including the B4030 should mean the plan is thrown out.

But West Oxfordshire District Council's planning officers have said it should be approved.
