BARBECUES could be permitted again on Marsh Meadows in Henley.
The town council, which owns the riverside beauty spot, banned them in the summer, saying they posed a fire risk.
Now it may lift the ban and allow people to cook their food in a specially designated area.
The council is considering putting in temporary paving slabs this summer with heatproof bins for disposing of hot coals.
If this proved successful, it would then consider building permanent barbecues similar to those found in Australian towns and cities.
