Commuters asked for views on housing

COMMUTERS have been urged to have their say on the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan.

COMMUTERS have been urged to have their say on the joint Henley and Harpsden neighbourhood plan.

Town councillor Dieter Hinke and committee administrator Paula Price-Davies handed out information postcards at Henley station yesterday (Thursday) from 6.30am to 8.30am.

Cllr Hinke said: “We feel we haven’t really got to grips with a large number of commuters.

“There are hundreds that go backwards and forwards to London and when they get home in the evening they don’t have time to get involved with the plan.

“We want to make sure we let people know what we are doing and that they know that they can have their voice heard. We want to make it easy for them to come to our working group meetings.”

Earlier this month, more than 100 people attended the first working group sessions at the town hall and over a three-day period examined issues and opportunities for housing, retail, transport, environment and social infrastructure.

The next workshops will be held between November 4 and 7. To take part in the working groups, download a form from www.jhhnp.co.uk or visit www.facebook.com/jhhnp
