Rotary Club Talk – Crisis? What Crisis? Housing and Henley after COVID and Brexit

Henley still thinks of itself as a quaint little market town with expensive houses. But is this still so with congested traffic, poor parking, a takeover by high-street chain stores, and an explosion of housing development? And how will all this be effected by COVID-19 and Brexit?

Housing and Henley will be the main topic on Tuesday 7 July of the Rotary Club of Henley-on-Thames’s third online open meeting. Guest speaker will be Matthew Davis, retired co-founder of Davis Tate Estate Agents, now a regional firm that has been selling and renting properties around Henley for 28 years.

Matthew will, of course, address everyone’s favourite issue: what will happen to house prices?

But he will also discuss how working-from-home can disrupt things; how high rents and local taxes are changing the retail sector in and around town; and just how much development can Henley take.

The meeting follows the Henley Rotary’s highly successful forums with Dr Philip Unwin on the future of doctoring, and Tim Prior on NOMAD’s community outreach.
