Only 54 per cent support draft neighbourhood plan

A SECOND public consultation on Henley and Harpsden’s joint neighbourhood plan may be needed.

The first draft of the document might have to be rewritten after residents raised concerns about sites earmarked for housing.

A total of 568 people returned questionnaires as part of a seven-week consultation that finished on July 4.

Only 54 per cent supported the plan overall and the same percentage endorsed its approach to housing.

The document names nine sites where between 400 and 485 new homes could go by 2027.
