PEOPLE living near possible sites for housing made up the biggest proportion of those responding to the neighbourhood plan survey.

The largest cluster came from Blandy Road and surrounding streets which back on to a field at Gillotts School and another at Lucy’s Farm on Drawback Hill, which between them could take up to 215 homes.

There were several smaller clusters along Fair Mile, where developers want to build up to 90 homes on land north-west of Luker Avenue. Those living in the Blandy Road area overwhelmingly opposed development at Gillotts and Lucy’s Farm while most living near Fair Mile supported it.

Former Henley mayor Barry Wood, who lives Blandy Road and chairs housing pressure group United!, said: “United! will generally support the redevelopment of Gillotts School and not resist a small amount of well-planned development there. Eighty-five houses is too many but 50 is a number I think we could all live with. We cannot see another way for Gillotts to sustain itself into the future.”

Dr Wood is also a member of the plan’s housing working group and was accused by another former mayor of having a conflict of interest. Ken Arlett, who sits on the housing and traffic groups, said Dr Wood had written to neighbours encouraging them to oppose development of Lucy’s Farm and Gillotts field.
