Kidmore End Parish Councillors have been contacted by a member of the Shiplake Parish Council with regards to the surprising decision recently made by the Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on 2nd August.

This decision granted planning permission for up to 95 dwellings on Thames Farm, located on the Reading Road (RG9 3PH). This area is within the boundary of the Henley & Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan and was not identified as a development site in its NDP.

We believe that this decision has implications for all Parishes undertaking their NDPs.
