Our Election Promises for 2019

 

Henley is a very successful and vibrant town but faces the same challenges as all small towns with respect to the sustainability of the High Street, traffic issues and housing for all who want to live and work here.

HRG aims to enhance the quality of life & well being of Henley residents and to strengthen our local economy and community.

We have consulted Henley residents with open meetings, an online survey and by listening to everyone we meet.
