Lidl More Pressure on A3023

The forthcoming May 2017 County Council elections are crucially important for our local Infrastructure. The majority of Council tax paid to Havant BC goes to Hampshire CC, which is responsible for such key issues as Adults’ and Children’s Services, Public Health, Environment, Regulatory – a planning committee making decisions on landfill, recycling, mineral and waste – and the Highways management. Our education and leisure resources, such as supporting our schools, libraries, museums and parks, are also the County Council’s responsibility. Hayling’s County Councillor may sit on such bodies as the Hampshire Fire Authority, Chichester Harbour Conservancy Board and the Cabinet as well of co

Rook Farm: Highways Response

Please visit Havant BC's Planning page to view the latest Document for Rook Farm APP/17/00007. Hampshire County Council Highways Development Planning has issued its response to the Outline Planning proposal and it merits careful reading. The conclusions are encouraging for those who are deeply concerned about the pressures that this proposed development would have on our infrastructure. However it is important that everyone takes the time to read through it, not only because there is at least some detail that everyone can understand, but also because everyone needs to have some understanding of the reasons for the Document's conclusions.

Langstone Roadworks

Today two Hampshire County Council Highways employees have both emailed and telephoned me in response to my emails and phone calls to that Department last Friday. The following information is supplied by these 2 staff: All works to take place on the A3023 Langstone Road section must take place overnight from 8 pm to 6 am to allow drivers to return home after work and get back to work. The road is termed ‘Traffic Sensitive’ from 06:30 to 18:30 7 days / week 365 days / year. This means that they will try to avoid having planned roadworks occurring between those times wherever possible. Work for dangerous or urgent reasons will however take place as and when necessary i.e. could be daytime. U

Lidl Proposal

Presumeably all Hayling Island residents will, by now, have received a letter and its invitation to an 'open day' this week for residents to view and discuss Lidl's development proposals at the corner of Church Rd. and Manor Rd. prior to their planning application submission. Lidl's letter clearly argues its reasons for being on Hayling. There are strong views both for and against this proposal. Anyone intending to write to their Hayling Councillor, copy to Lidl (emails below), must first consider the consequences - both the unintended and the foreseeable - of having the 2 storey Lidl store at the roundabout juncture of Church Rd. and Manor Rd. The literature states that, as a discount fo

Update Langstone Rd.

It appears that the vans, lights etc seen by local Langstone residents yesterday afternoon have disappeared this morning and there is no sign of any roadworks. Yet roadworks.org still shows both symbols plus information. Of more concern is that Southern Water contact failed to call me back yesterday to update me either way and Hampshire CC Highways didn't clarify the situation. It appears that we need an agreement from our Highways Department, who should be fully apprised of any works being agreed, to provide an online service simply displaying any work on the Langstone A3023. We also need to be informed that Southern Water, like Portsmouth Water, agrees to conduct their work overnight.

Disruption A3023 Langstone

Checking roadworks.org indicates that there are two roadworks planned: Southbrook Rd. and just north of Langbrook Close. One of these is for Southern Water: Description: Dig to replace frame and cover in C/W Works ref: LQ001SWAT08418699 Current status: Planned work about to start Work info last updated: 11:44 on 27/02/2017 Last updated on roadworks.org: 15:30 on 03/03/2017 Data source: Southern Water I rang Hampshire County Council Highways before 4pm this afternoon to establish exactly when the work is planned but only gained a Service Ticket and apparently their relevant Office's line was engaged and the office would close at 4:30 today, so no chance to ask when the work is taking place.

Long Overdue Infrastructure Review

What we believe is Hayling Island’s first Infrastructure Review is now finally being conducted by Hampshire County Council thanks to tremendous pressure from Hayling residents at HIRA’s October AGM and Save Our Island’s Petition of over 5,000 signatures. HIRA supporters delivered over 6,000 leaflets supporting this campaign. The Infrastructure Review Group comprises Havant Borough and Hampshire County Councils’ Officers, Hayling Councillors, several Hayling residents’ representatives including HIRA and Save Our Island and Langstone residents’ representatives. The enquiries’ results will be discussed by the Group and eventually form a Report that, we are told, will feed into Havant BC’s Ho
