Major Infrastructure Review

Yesterday's 2 hour Infrastructure Review Meeting involving Hayling and Langstone Residents' representatives, Havant Borough Council (HBC) & Hants County Council (HCC) was broad in scope and allowed all those present ample time to raise any subject germane to the group. Residents and residents' representatives had every opportunity to raise issues of concern. The conclusion from this first meeting is that HBC & HCC will undertake a complete study of Hayling Island's unique environment. We understand that this is the first such Review to be undertaken despite the warnings given since the 1980s that the A3023, as a key infrastructure element, was neither designed nor built for the vehicle lo

Your Views on Dog Walkers

Havant BC seeks residents' views on dog fouling, dogs being off leads in open spaces or on our Blue Flag Beach as part of a consultation for the proposed Public Spaces Protection Order (PSBO). If accepted, the PSBO would replace the Borough's existing controls and any breaches could result in owners receiving a Fixed Penalty Notice fine of £75. Unfortunately this appears to have to be, yet again, completed online but if someone needs paper copies they should apply to the Council Offices. This link has both documents and the questionnaire: https://www.havant.gov.uk/news/who-let-dogs-out-public-consultation-dogs-open-spaces HIRA brought to HBC's our Councillors' attention last year the need

Planning Needed At All Levels

In January 2016, a national paper found that the nine biggest housebuilders were sitting on enough land to build 615,152 homes, 475,000 of those had planning permission but had yet to be built. Just up the A3 is the promised Whitehill and Bordon new ‘Green Town’ proposing at least 3,350 new homes but it has still to be built.
