A NEW 100-space car park in Henley will be built despite controversy surrounding a petition supporting it.
Planned just off the Birmingham Road at the northern entrance to town, 39 Henley businesses initially signed a petition in favour of the new car park.
However, 26 of these asked for their names to be removed when they realised it was being built on greenbelt land.
The car park will be open from 7am-11pm Mondays to Saturdays and 8am-6pm on Sundays.
Forty-eight of the parking spaces will be allocated to Forward House employees between 7am-7pm Monday to Friday.
Outside of these times, these will be available to the public alongside the 50 other public spaces. There will be two spaces for coaches.
The car park will be built by Forward Midland LLP, the same company who own the office space at Forward House, on land owned by Henley Golf and Country Club.
After it was given the green light, Henley resident and anti-car park campaigner Laurence Marshall said: “This is not just about the erosion of the greenbelt. It is also a fundamental erosion of democracy that has been enabled by our elected representatives on both the Parish and District Council.”
