RESTAURANT owners in Henley have denied being responsible for smelly rubbish. They claim the foul stench

RESTAURANT owners in Henley have denied being responsible for smelly rubbish. They claim the foul stench that has gripped part of the town is due to the rubbish not being collected on time. The traders were responding to a call by the town council’s environment committee to “clean up their act”.

An alternative route to be used during repairs to the Marsh Lock footbridge in Henley has been criticised by the town council. Walkers have been advised by Oxfordshire County Council to walk along Mill Lane and then Reading Road before rejoining the footpath at Bolney Lane in Shiplake. Deputy Mayor Janine Voss said it was “madness” to expect people to walk along the busy Reading Road. “It could be fatal,” she said.

Plans to ease Henley’s chronic parking problems with an underground car park moved a step closer this week. The town council wants to build a car park for 1,000 vehicles beneath Makins recreation ground and is set to spend up to £2,000 on a feasibility study.
