Since publishing this notice a month ago, our residents have posted over thirty comments which clearly show the anxiety caused by the revised wording in the NDP which updated on the status of the WCG sports ground at the request of SDC.  The JPC and the authors of the NDP came together in the public session of the JPC Ordinary Meeting, held on Zoom last Monday the 17th, and these concerns were aired by all. Please see the AGENDAS and MINUTES section on this site listing the minutes of this meeting of the 17th and the letter of clarification forwarded to SDC yesterday. The NDP is still in draft form and has no legal standing, it will be the subject of a full PUBLIC CONSULTATION following SDC’s deliberations, and everyone in Henley and the surrounds will be invited to voice their opinions.

Please visit this site for ongoing updates, including the public meeting at the SDC offices in Stratford where the JPC and other representatives from Henley will debate the Planning Application Reference 20/00066/FUL, which is the focus of the comments on this page.

    The lack of clarity and openness by the omission of accurate detail in the revised wording of the latest NDP concerning Henley sports centre is alarming. A concerted effort is being undertaken to deprive the local community of the use a vital local asset. There is almost total opposition to this proposal by residents of Henley in Aden and surrounding districts and yet this latest NDP is a complete lie, an attempt to cover the covert devious activities of minute pro- change of use supporters who are attempting to deprive the community of this vital sports and Leisure centre. Contrary to reports there is no intention or rational plan to replace this centre. The latest NDP proves there is a conspiracy to permanently deprive the public of of their legal rights to use this fantastic facility. The whole situation is a public scandal and should be stopped in its track immediately
