Your help is needed to draw up a Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood that establishes where new homes in Henley should be built and what the priorities are for green spaces, transport improvements and recreational and community facilities.
A key focus for the Plan is that the South Oxfordshire Core Strategy requires that land for at least 400 new homes is identified in the Henley-on-Thames area. The Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan will need to identify sites for housing and a long list has already been established by South Oxfordshire District Council.
The Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan is not a Town, Parish, District or County Council initiative or project. It is a Plan to be created and owned by residents. If you get involved, you have the opportunity to shape the future of the area you live in.
The Public Consultation Period is extended by a week....
The Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan Governance Committee has elected to extend the consultation on the draft Plan by an additional week, taking the closing date to 5PM on Friday July 4th. The decision is made to allow those attending consultation sessions at the Town Hall on Wed 25th 5-9PM and Thurs 26th 5-9PM to submit questionnaires or online responses, as well as giving statutory consultees extra time to prepare their responses.
A six-week Public Consultation period will take place between Friday 16th May & Friday 27th June 2014 when comments and suggestions can be made on the Draft Neighbourhood Plan.
The easiest way to make comments is using an online survey, which can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/JHHNP. Both the draft plan and questionnaire will be able to be downloaded from the www.jhhnp.co.uk website from the downloads section during the consultation period.
In addition there will be:
• A fixed display in the foyer of the Henley Town Hall between Friday 16th May and Friday 27th June.
• A drop-in exhibition in the Council Chamber at Henley
Town Hall on:
Friday 30th (12-8pm) & Saturday 31st May (10am -4pm)
Wednesday 25th (5-9pm) & Thursday 26th June (5-9pm).
• Town Councillors will also be holding local events during the period, which will be advertised.
