Rally for residents to attend Henley public forum


THE Henley Parish Council is encouraging residents to make their voices heard at tonight's (Monday) forum for the Henley Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The forum will be held at 7pm at the Memorial Hall in Henley. Henley is at the end of the process of developing its neighbourhood development plan, and after the public consultation there will be a referendum vote by the residents.

The parish council distributed over 2,000 leaflets to households across Henley calling the meeting the most important one for the town this decade.

Parish Council Chair Cllr Peter Crathorne said: “We want as many residents as possible to come. It’s the first public review of our Neighbourhood Development Plan.

"The purpose of the Neighbourhood Development Plan is to be an expression of what a parish wants in terms of future development in all aspects of the community. It’s designed so that towns are protected against large-scale developments.”

People in attendance will be able to review a draft copy of the plan, express their opinions and suggest last-minute amendments.

Cllr Crathorne added: “If we’ve got a good plan in place we stand a good chance of protecting our very pleasant town against large highly concentrated housing developments on the green belt. The residents of Henley will be able to demonstrate they are determined to defend their lifestyle and town by all means possible.”
