Henley Town Council and Harpsden Parish Council are reviewing the Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan. The emerging South Oxfordshire District Council Local Plan
suggests that more houses will be required in Henley over the next 15 years.
Landowners and developers were invited to submit sites for consideration in 2019 and submissions have since been assessed by AECOM, an external consultancy, for their suitability. The report on this can be seen on the agenda for the Neighbourhood Plan Committee meeting on 22 June 2020 – https://www.henleytowncouncil.gov.uk/Committee-meetings-agendas-minutes-etc.aspxhttps://www.henleytowncouncil.gov.uk/Committee-meetings-agendas-minutes-etc.aspx
To continue the process of selecting possible sites for development, site promoters are presenting their sites to the public and the Neighbourhood Plan Committee virtually on Zoom in a series of online sessions. The presentations will also be streamed live on YouTube.
These will be running on Monday 28th September, Wednesday 30th September and Thursday 1st October between 6:30pm – 9:30pm.
Residents will be given the opportunity to put questions to site developers and this will help to determine a list of potentially suitable sites for development in Henley and Harpsden.
The presentation timetable is currently:
Monday 28th September
• 853 and 853a Land at Highlands Farm – 6:30pm
• Site 991 Chilterns End – 7: 30pm
