Turning Back the Pages

SAFEWAY has made the first moves to buy up industrial land off Reading Road in Henley. The plans, which will mean knocking down police house nos 175 to 181, next to the Regatta Service Station, look likely to include a superstore, car parking, a new access road running parallel to the railway and traffic lights on Reading Road.

The future of the Henley Day Centre now rests with South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee. Proposals by the trustees of the Henley Educational Charity to redevelop the centre were turned down by the southern area planning sub-committee last month by eight votes to one but the planning department has still to come up with the reasons for refusal.

Complaints about smelly rubbish being left outside Henley restaurants has prompted a survey by South Oxfordshire District Council. Last August town councillors and residents living close to restaurants in Reading Road were appalled by rotting refuse crawling with maggots which had been left outside catering premises for collection by contractors working for the district council. Restaurant owners claimed that the hot weather combined with late collection was the cause of the problem.
