Neighbourhood plan consultation extended

THE public consultation on the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan has been extended by a week, writes James Burton.

Residents are being urged to have their say on the first draft of the plan before the new deadline of 5pm next Friday. The document names nine sites where up to 479 new homes could be built by 2027 and sets policies on the local economy, environment and transport.

A six-week consultation was launched on May 16 by Henley Town Council, which is overseeing the process with the help of consultants Nexus Planning.

Almost 3,000 questionnaires have been handed out at various public events but only 250 have been returned.

Deputy Mayor Jeni Wood said: “The sad thing is that we have not had enough forms back but hopefully this extra week will encourage people to fill one out.”
