Developers Apply for Extra Floor Within the Roof at The Hub

Hub Property Management Co Limited have submitted a Prior Notification Approval under permitted development order (PDO) rights to build seven extra apartments at a third floor level within the roof space of The Hub building in Station Road.

Over the years, the site has seen a number of controversial planning applications to convert the offices into apartments.  In May 2018 SODC approved a permitted development order for 24 apartments.  In October 2018, they submitted another application for 24 apartments with an extra top floor housing 6 residential apartments which was refused by SODC.  Ressance Limited of Newbury appealed SODC’s decision in January 2020 and this was dismissed in February 2020.  In May 2021 SODC approved a PDO for 18 apartments.

The application was reviewed by Henley Town Council Planning Committee last week and members agreed that they thought this application was not suitable under permitted development rights and that they wanted to see an illustration showing the outside elevation and a street scene submitted.  They were also concerns about the parking allocation at the site.

The public consultation is open until 13 February.  To comment please go to
