Planning chiefs look set to refuse 'inappropriate' retirement flats on Henley green belt

Stratford Editorial 8th Jul, 2019   0

PLANS to build 24 retirement flats on the site of Henley Golf Club look set to be refused.

Club owners Crocketts Holdings Ltd want to build four buildings, each containing six apartments, on the Birmingham Road site.

The land is currently earmarked for a 72-bedroom hotel called Dormy House, which permission was granted to the club’s owners for in 2006.

But Crockett Holdings has submitted a new application after being told a hotel would not generate enough revenue or be viable with the facilities available.




The new application for retirement homes is recommended for refusal by Stratford District Council’s planning committee on Wednesday.

Despite some support by locals – who say apartments be more welcome than a hotel and generate less traffic – officers say it would be an ‘inappropriate development’ on Green Belt land and there is a lack of affordable housing in the plans.
