Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan

The Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan was made (adopted) as part of the district council’s development plan on 14 April 2016. The parish council has begun a review of the plan.

What’s happening now?

Henley-on-Thames Town Council has submitted a reviewed neighbourhood plan to South Oxfordshire District Council. If adopted, the reviewed plan will replace the Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan adopted on 14 April 2016.

The publicity period on the draft plan concluded on 16 March 2022. The draft plan documents and comments received during the publicity period have now been submitted for independent examination. Please see Response Report A and Response Report B.

Andrew Ashcroft has been appointed by the district council to carry out the examination. The examiner’s role is to make recommendations on the draft plan, and ultimately on if the plan should proceed to referendum.

The district council’s Modifications Statement has been submitted to the examiner.

The examiner issued a Clarification Note on 30 March 2022. The response from the town council and appendix have now been published.

A public hearing will take place as part of the examination on 1 August 2022 from 10.15 am at Henley Town Hall, Market Place, Henley on Thames RG9 2AQ. Take a look at the examiner’s hearing note.
