Identity shop set for town centre

AN ?identity shop? could be opened in Henley.

AN ?identity shop? could be opened in Henley.

Timpson wants to open the store, called ArkHive, at the former Johnsons dry cleaners next to its own shop in Bell Street.

The Grade II listed building would have a new shop front, signage and fascia, while inside there would be a ?biometric zone? and photographic area.

The company?s planning applications says: ?The proposed development is a venture by Timpson to offer all services associated with providing identification for government and official documentation (passports, driving licences, help in applying) and business services, such as business cards, under the name ArkHive.

?The development represents an opportunity to revitalise a currently vacant shop in the conservation area, bringing a range of goods and services which will enhance the current provision of the town centre.?

South Oxfordshire District Council is set to make a decision on the application by October 7.
