Planners’ thinking seems all back to front

DIETER HINKE, who chairs the town council’s planning committee, is normally very calm at meetings.

But when it came to a proposal to turn a flat in Market Place into two he seemingly lost his cool.

Cllr Hinke took issue with a report from South Oxfordshire District Council’s health and housing department which says that a mechanical ventilation system should be fitted to extract air from the rear of the building to improve air quality.

Cllr Hinke says: “I note the report and it is getting annoying for me as I have had about four of these. They have said that air should be brought in from the rear and they can’t have air coming in from the front.

“Market Place is where hundreds of people in Henley walk around and you can’t have a first-floor window open.”
