On the 2 and 3 of July, over three hundred people visited Henley Town Hall to view the Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan Exhibition last Friday 2 - Saturday 3 July.
The Exhibition was another important milestone for the Emerging Neighbourhood Plan. Members of the Neighbourhood Plan Committee and site promoters were at the event and fielded a wide range of questions from the public.
As part of the consultation, extensive information is available online, including the site handbook and assessments. This means that if you missed the exhibition, you can still access all the relevant information.
The survey (which runs until 12 July) provides an important opportunity for respondents to feed back on sites to be taken forward for further consideration and to review the draft policies proposed by the Neighbourhood Plan Committee.
Councillor Ken Arlett, Chair of the Joint Henley and Harpsden Neighbourhood Planning Committee added,
“We had a fantastic turnout, with attendees asking searching and detailed questions to our committee and the site promoters who attended.
There were well over three hundred attendees. To date, we have received less than a third of that number of completed surveys. This may be because visitors are taking time to consider the site evaluations… This is no bad thing! Do remember that the survey closes on 12 July. I would encourage everyone who cares about Henley and Harpsden to complete it.
Completing the survey is absolutely the best way to ensure that your views are heard and incorporated.”
