Thames Farm - SODC's Notice of Refusal of Planning Permission

A copy of SODC's 'Refusal of Outline Planning Permission' notice for Thames Farm is on the planning page of the villages' website. The reasons given vindicate the views of Henley TC, Harpsden and Shiplake councils, our OCC and SODC District councillors and, most importantly, residents. Click here to view it....it makes interesting reading.

 

Mt. Ida and other developments

Recently the parish council referenced the likelihood of an increase in the proposals and planning applications from developers to build a large number of houses in Shiplake. 

Planning applications c/o SODC will be assessed by the parish council's Planning Working Group and a recommendation made based on national planning policy, guidelines and local factors. The application for Mt. Ida was considered on 19/09/2016 and the group unanimously agreed to reject the applications for essentially the same reasons as that for Thames Farm.

The specifics of the reasons will be publicly available shortly via the SODC website referenced by: P16/S2861/O with public responses required by 26/09/2016. Click here to provide your response or use the planning section of the Shiplake website to access the SODC Planning Dept. link.

The parish council offers the opportunity for developers to discuss their proposals/plans during the Open Forum section of monthly council meetings.

Thames Farm...some confusion as to which site it is!

The latest issue of the Henley Standard includes a letter from a Henley resident disappointed that Thames Farm site was rejected at the SODC committee meeting on 7/9/16. On reading the text, there is clearly confusion with the now derelict Wyevale garden centre. This has been confirmed with the resident. Other incidences of such mistaken views have also been reported verbally. Harpsden parish council's chairman, Kester George, is expected to clarify the position next week.

It would appear that some people mistakenly think that the derelict Wyvale site is Thames Farm and should be developed, whereas Thames farm is a greenfield site. Please ensure that such views are corrected in any conversations you might have.
