DEVELOPERS want to build 100 new flats costing up to £70,000 each at two locations in Henley. Linden Homes told town councillors it is talking with Invesco Perpetual about buying its vacant Station Road office to turn it into 60 flats. The company also wants to build 40 flats on a car park off Quebec Road. Councillors have queried the number of parking spaces at the proposed sites, particularly in Station Road where parking is limited.

A one-armed farmer who has lived without electricity for 36 years has been told it will cost him nearly £32,000 to be connected to the mains — and he will have to dig the trench himself. Michael Hunt, 61, who lost his right arm in a machine accident 14 years ago, needs to be connected to the main power point just 400m from his farmhouse in Russells Water.

A new nightclub in Henley could open its doors until 5am at weekends. Club Unique, based in Greys Road car park, would be renamed White Lotus, an upmarket establishment which would have a smart dress code and an exclusive VIP lounge if it is approved by South Oxfordshire District Council. Manager Darryl Bedding, 35, says he will try to bring the style and class of a London bar closer to home for those over 21.
