Please review and comment on the Shiplake Villages Neighbourhood Plan

It may not be the most pressing item on your mind right now, with all that’s going on in the world, but if you have some spare moments we’d very much like to hear your views on the Shiplake Villages Neighbourhood Plan. It is in its pre-submission consultation period which is currently scheduled to continue to April 21st (under review). Thank you to those who have already made their thoughts known. To access the 2020 Neighbourhood Plan, summary and questionnaire page CLICK HERE.

We appreciate there is a lot of content in the documentation for the plan, so we have created a 22-page cut-down version of the plan’s key points for you to review. The strong support of residents for the plan has been fundamental to its development and is also very important at this pre-consultation stage. After reviewing the summary of the plan material, as mentioned above, there’s the simple four question Questionnaire to record your thoughts and send them to us.

Thank you!

Note: If you’ve any questions or concerns please feel free to use the Shiplake Villages website FORUM and the team will respond.

Community Champion & Henley Superstar

Chosen by the public in a closely fought category in the 2020 Henley Herald Community Champion Awards, our very own Keith Whiting came away victorious for his contribution to the community at Christmas.

On Christmas Day, Keith cooks a festive meal at the Christ Church Centre for those who otherwise wouldn’t have one. “What you do for people is really important,” he said as he accepted his award. “You have to give a little bit back to society. It’s very, very important. The thing is, for me, it doesn’t matter how knackered I am, serving someone else who is going to be on their own on Christmas Day is very, very important.”

For full details of the awards see here on the Henley Herald website
