PLANS by Phyllis Court Club in Henley to relocate gate piers to provide a new pedestrian
PLANS by Phyllis Court Club in Henley to relocate gate piers to provide a new pedestrian access have been backed by town councillors.
There is currently no pedestrian access from Marlow Road to Phyllis Court Drive, which means that people on foot have to share the space with vehicles.
The club’s agents MJ Conway said: “This is the only entrance leading to both Phyllis Court Club and a large number of residential properties that share Phyllis Court Drive.
“It is proposed that the left-hand pair of gate piers is moved to create the space required for the new footpath. The existing road layout is to stay the same.
“The new gate piers will be constructed to the same shape and size and use the same type of building materials so as to minimise the visual impact of the move and maintain the historical significance and aesthetics of the existing entrance.”
Members of the town council’s planning committee recommended approval and South Oxfordshire District Council will make a decision by October 10.
