HENLEY and Harpsden’s joint neighbourhood plan will still be published on time despite losing one of its leading figures.
Dieter Hinke, who was chairman of Henley Town Council’s neighbourhood planning governance committee, was not re-elected last week.
But his Conservative colleague Will Hamilton said a new chairman would be appointed next week.
He said: “It is a great shame that Dieter lost his seat but we are constantly discussing this among ourselves and with our consultants, Nexus Planning.
“It is business as usual and we are doing everything we can behind the scenes so the timeframe will not be affected.”
The plan names 11 sites where at least 450 homes will go by 2027. It will be sent to South Oxfordshire District Council for independent inspection in the next few weeks and will go to a referendum in the autumn.
