Ten years ago...

TWO shops have opened in Henley each month on average since the launch of the Henley Standard’s Think Local campaign a year ago. A total of 25 businesses have started trading, helping to fill the 34 vacant premises that were blighting the town centre. This compares with just six more closures, now leaving only 18 stores.

Changes made to an historic Henley hotel have been attacked by town councillors. Retrospective planning consent has been sought by the owners, M G Hotels, to retain French doors and a balcony at the Grade II listed Red Lion Hotel on the corner of Hart Street and Riverside. The alterations were made to a first-floor bedroom next door to the Chantry House, Henley’s only Grade I listed
building.

A landowner who has spent 10 years trying to stop the public using a footpath across his land has been defeated in the High Court. Brian Paterson, of Brookfields, Mill Road, Lower Shiplake, objected to the public right of way which will link Mill Road and Shiplake with the River Thames.
