Brakspear appeal on pub plans
Published 01/09/14



AN appeal has been lodged over the refusal of plans to turn a former Henley pub into a house.

Brakspear applied to convert the Rose and Crown, a Grade II listed pub in New Street, into a six-bedroom home. The pub closed in August last year.

In April, South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee voted unanimously to refuse planning permission due to the loss of commercial property in the street and harm to the conservation area.

The decision was supported by the town council.

Now the pub company has appealed.


Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said the conversion was the “sensible thing to do”.

“It’s not a viable business for us anymore,” he said. “There are plenty of other pubs in the area that get used far more.

“A lot of residents are fully supportive and there are a few people that reminisce about drinking in a pub in years gone by.

“The reality is it’s not going to re-open as a pub and I hope they’ll see sense.”

The appeal will determined by the written representations procedure.
