New M&S store and flats plan

RETAIL giant Marks & Spencer could be coming to Henley.

The company has earmarked a site next to Tesco, off Reading Road, for a development that would include a Simply Food store with 28 flats above it plus parking for residents and shoppers.

It would mean the demolition of both the AFC Henley and Henley Hockey Club clubhouses and changing rooms, the former Exclusively Ladies gym, which closed in 2010, and a council depot.

A second offer to develop the land has been made by Inland Homes, which owns the neighbouring Jet garage and former National Tyres and Autocare centre where it wants to build 50 to 60 homes.

The site, which is owned by the town council, was put forward as part of the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan.
