The Henley Neighbourhood plan is seriously flawed
Although I have voted in favour of the Neighbourhood plan, I have done so largely to avoid the process being taken out of local hands and 'given back' to SODC.
However I have grave reservations about the NP in its present form
1) Because it includes site allocations that I oppose, and/or
2) Because it fails to include some more suitable sites, and/or
3) Because it fails to provide a meaningful solution to the problems of traffic congestion and through traffic, without which 400-500 new houses will impose to great a strain on existing infrastructure, and/or
4) Because I have no confidence that Henley Town Council is properly in control of the process, nor that it will take account of concerns and/or opposition.
My vote should therefore not be taken as providing a mandate for the existing NP as it stands, in its entirety, but rather as a simple approval of the concept of making local planning decisions locally.
