PLANS have been submitted to demolish the former Jet petrol station and National Tyres garage in Henley ready for the site to be developed.
The land off Mill Lane and Reading Road has been put forward as a possible location for 55 homes under the draft joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan.
But the planning application by Inland Homes, which bought the site last year, has been made to South Oxfordshire District Council before the results of public consultation on the plan have been published.
The company has already closed off the site and plans to begin demolition work this month.
Dieter Hinke, chairman of Henley Town Council’s neighbourhood plan governance committee, wasn’t surprised the application had been made so soon.
