Strong 'Turn out' & Healthy Debate at APM


Many thanks to all the residents who attended the Annual Parish Meeting and contributed to the debate on the BIG issues facing the villages. Our thanks also to John Howell (MP) for his contributions and support on a number of fronts....objections to the proposed development at Thames Farm, working with the Chilterns Conservation Board  to review the local AONB and for the possibility of a cycle path alongside the railway track between Shiplake and Henley. 

The efficacy of school Academies at a local level in primary schools was strongly debated, in response to which John promised to provide evidence supporting the initiative, which we will be publish on our website. So too will the update on the branch line electrification project.
AND, a final reminder to those who have not yet and want to respond to the Thames Farm planning application:
For administrative reasons SODC  have extended the consultation deadline to 6th May. Click on the link  below to send your response:
