Revealed: nine sites for 479 new homes

NINE sites where up to 479 houses could be built in Henley and Harpsden over the next 13 years are revealed by the Henley Standard this week.

The list, compiled by a volunteer working group, will be included in the first draft of the parishes’ joint neighbourhood plan.

It almost certainly rules out the possibility of a Marks & Spencer store on land owned by the town council near Tesco, off Reading Road.

The plan is due to be published next month and will go out for a six-week public consultation before a second draft is produced. This will then be inspected before going to a referendum and will become legally binding if more than half of voters approve it.

The sites were narrowed down from a list of 17 which were offered for development by landowners last year.
