A public consultation on proposals for the future redevelopment of the former Wyevale Garden Centre on the A4155 (Reading Road) will take place today (Friday) and Saturday, at the site.
If approved, the proposals will see the currently derelict brownfield site regenerated into a mixed use development comprising business space, a community hub and up to 40 new homes.
The Wyevale Garden Centre closed around eight years ago and has become overgrown and unsightly after several years of inactivity. The site was identified for redevelopment as a commercial site in the Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan (JHHNP).
Dairy Lane Ltd, the owners of the site, are working with Adam Architecture, the UKs leading architects specialising in classical and traditional styles, to design the scheme. Adam Architecture’s clients include the Duchy of Cornwall, the private estate of The Prince of Wales.
Alex Hersham, who is acting as a representative for Dairy Lane, said, “This brownfield site provides a unique opportunity for a high quality development of new community and commercial space and much needed family homes in a convenient and accessible location, without setting a precedent for other planning applications on nearby greenfield land.”
The public exhibition will run between 3pm and 7:30pm on Friday 10 November and 11am and 2:30pm on Saturday 11 November. It will take place at the site:
Former Wyevale Garden Centre A4155 (Reading Road) Henley-on-Thames RG9 4AE
The exhibition will be an opportunity for people to learn about the plans and provide valuable feedback, which will be used to shape the proposals before the submission of an outline planning application. Everyone is welcome to attend and you do not need to register in advance.
