HENLEY Town Council has ruled out trying to buy the town’s youth centre.
Councillors discussed the issue in private on Tuesday following a decision by the trustees of the Deanfield Avenue centre to close it.
The Thamesfield Youth Association says it can longer afford the £45,000-a-year running costs and will sell the site.
Town clerk Mike Kennedy said councillors considered using powers introduced under the Localism Act to bid for the centre as a community asset but decided against.
The council has given the centre £10,000 a year since Oxfordshire County Council decided in 2011 to withdraw an annual grant of £25,000.
