Open space in NP

Is there an option of having more open space in the upcoming NP. Would be lovely to have space for community events such as community bbq's, etc.

You are quite correct that due to SODC having problems with maintaining the required level of land supply for housing the Village has been subjected to various Planning Applications where the Harpsden/Henley NP has been ignored. That said and rather surprisingly SODC announced only yesterday that they have now achieved a 5.4 year supply. The magic threshold is 5 years.....so if their figures are robust, NP's will carry weight and be applied in further appeals.

Sorry Felix, obviously not aimed at your comment directly, just a frustration at watching our village being slowly destroyed... your idea is a good one but unfortunately unless you are a developer and prepared to put enough money into a project that will then ultimtelybecome untouchable to local council or residents then there is no chance...lovely thought though.

Just a polite suggestion

Open space in Lower Shiplake?!, Ha Ha Ha,that's brilliant.The tiniest bit of anything with grass on and someone will either chop a tree down or build a house on it..Open space? There won't be anything like that anywhere around Shiplake anytime soon. The village is/has been ruined, the NP has no teeth, the Wyevale development will go ahead, Thames Farm is going ahead, Mount Ida will get approved,anyone with a garden gets to build a house on it.The village will be unrecognisable in 3 years. Fact
