CONCERNS over plans to redevelop the old cattle market in Henley-in-Arden have seen the high bailiff call a town meeting.

CONCERNS over plans to redevelop the old cattle market in Henley-in-Arden have seen the high bailiff call a town meeting.

Developers Taylor Wimpey revealed new plans for 42 houses - reduced from the original 67 - and a small supermarket - at a public meeting last month.

The previous proposal was discussed and rejected by residents in November 2007.

Despite concerns from residents who fear the development will go ahead unless a campaign is launched, the chair of Beaudesert and Henley Joint Parish Council, Councillor Len Goodman said the council would discuss the plans when they had been submitted to Stratford District Council.

Now high bailiff Roger Sutton will chair a meeting in line with his ancient duty to receive requests from residents.

Taylor Wimpey, the Henley Society, Stratford District Council, Warwickshire Highways, the Environment Agency and the headteacher of Henley High School have all been invited to the meeting which is set to take place on Tuesday August 17 at 7.30pm in the Memorial Hall.

A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey said: “The current proposal comprises a development of 42 houses and a 4,000 sq ft convenience food store at the front of the development in Warwick Road.

“If permission is granted construction is likely to commence towards the end of the year with the first homes being available for occupation mid 2011.”
