Listed pub conversion refused

PLANS to turn a former Henley pub into a house have been refused.

Brakspear applied to convert the Rose and Crown, a Grade II listed pub in New Street, into a six-bedroom home.

However, South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee voted unanimously to refuse permission due to the loss of commercial property in the street and harm to the conservation area.

The pub closed in August but the property is still being used as a bed and breakfast.

The council received 12 emails objecting to the plans and one in favour.
