Get involved in shaping your community

RESIDENTS of Henley and Harpsden are being urged to have their say on the future of their communities.

RESIDENTS of Henley and Harpsden are being urged to have their say on the future of their communities.

A questionnaire devised by the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan team is published in this week?s Henley Standard. The questionnaire asks residents where they think houses should be built as well as about issues such as traffic, health, the environment, policing and sports facilities.

Henley town clerk Mike Kennedy said: ?This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to express your opinion on the issues that matter to you.

?Never before have the residents of Henley and Harpsden had the chance to debate every aspect of town life in this way.

?It?s your community, your vision and your future and that?s why it is so important that everybody completes and returns the questionnaire.?

The plan is being drawn up in response to a target 400 new homes to be built in the two parishes by 2027.

It will recommend where development should take place and be the subject of a referendum next which would make it legally binding.

More information about the plan will be available at drop-in sessions at Henley town hall on three days next week.

These will take place on Thursday from noon to 8pm, Friday (4pm to 8pm) and Saturday (10am until 4pm).

Volunteers are needed to join the working groups that will compile the plan.
