    I wish to make a formal representation as a Henley resident to the latest pre-draft of the NDP, whereby the wording to Policy C3, Sports and Leisure Facilities (p.22), has been amended in such a way as to mis-represent the wishes of a significant number of the community. Prior to this latest amendment, the JPC indicated its intention to negotiate with Warwickshire College Group for the retention of the sports facilities on the existing site. This is in accordance with Stratford District Council Core strategy that looks to maintain and develop existing health and well-being facilities unless equivalent or better alternatives are made readily available in a similar location. The revised wording implies that the sports facilities are already ‘lost’ to the local community, thereby indicating predetermination to the Planning application currently under review by SDC Planning Department. This is not a true reflection of the current status and is therefore an inaccurate statement.
