Plans are under way to create a memorial garden for George Harrison in the town he made his home.
Kellie Hinton, mayor of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, said talks had progressed with his widow Olivia and charity the Material World Foundation.
The Beatles legend moved to the Grade II-listed Friar Park in Henley, where Mrs Harrison still lives, in the 1970s.
A previous campaign to erect a statue to the former Beatle was halted following a request from Mrs Harrison.
But Ms Hinton said the charity had confirmed Mrs Harrison was in favour of a garden inspired by the singer and guitarist instead.
