Hundreds have their say on Henley plan

MORE than 700 people gave their views on the second draft of Henley and Harpsden?s joint neighbourhood plan.

MORE than 700 people gave their views on the second draft of Henley and Harpsden?s joint neighbourhood plan.

The document names 11 locations where 450 homes should go between now and 2027 and is expected to be the subject of a referendum later this year.

Residents were asked their thoughts on each of the sites as part of a six-week public consultation, which finished a fortnight ago.

Henley Town Council, which is overseeing the process with its consultant Nexus Planning, says it is still processing the responses.

Councillor Dieter Hinke, chairman of its neighbourhood planning governance committee, said he was pleased with how many people took part.

He said: ?We had about 200 responses to our initial sites consultation and fewer than 600 for the first full consultation whereas this time we?ve had about 710.

?We are taking our time to analyse the responses as we want to make sure we get the full benefit from them.

?We were concerned that people might be getting tired of the process but we?re delighted that so many took part. It shows the people of Henley take a keen interest in their future.?

More details are expected to emerge next week.
