More Police:Petition

Hayling's recent Infrastructure Delivery Advisory Group learned that Hayling's police allocation is: One Police Officer & two Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). In case you are unaware of the significance of these terms, two of our Committee members provide the following explanations together with the implications so that we can better understand the current Petition's (link below) concerns: > Police Officers undergo an initial training lasting two years before they are confirmed in their role. They carry warrant cards and have the power of arrest. > PCSOs are uniformed civilian employees of the police, who can detain someone until an Officer's arrival, but can neither search nor

House Numbers!

First Responders could waste valuable time searching for your flat or house number/name when answering a call for emergency assistance at your home. Make sure your house /flat number can be seen at all times especially at night. Maybe use your wheelie bins, garage doors, front walls - visibility saves lives! Let your Neighbourhood Watch team know about this, so that they can contact others.

Sinah Field: Save Our Island

As the invited speakers at this forum today, it is our intention to demonstrate: a) that this proposal in its current form does not:  encompass current Government advice to developers  recognise the Borough’s demographics, or  reflect the local infrastructure constraints or housing needs. b) that Barratt, through this proposal and their Oysters project have not earned the residents’ trust, nor displayed the commitment or integrity expected from a developer on Hayling Island. In its thrust to speed up their house-building programme, Central Government has repeatedly advised Developers to:  Build houses close to places of work  Recognise local constraints and housing needs in their propos

Sinah Field: Mitigation Presentation

Barratt Homes’ proposal should not be considered for housing development on site UE18 for the following reason: The proposal is in breach of Barratt Homes’ own binding agreement with Havant Borough Council, within the Discharge of Condition, which was essential before planning permission could be granted for the very recent Oysters Development in West Town. “Tyler Grange Discharge of Condition Brent Goose Mitigation Strategy, 11th Sept 2013 (APP 15 00919)” In order to compensate for the loss of Brent Geese grazing land as a consequence of the adjacent Oysters Development, the mitigation strategy states that the field in question, H34C in which this proposal is located, should be continually

Sinah Field: HIRA Presentation

(Please note that Presentations must focus on the site specific issues.) "The proposed development site’s high water table- within 3 feet of the surface - requires a SUDS, a Sustainable Urban Drainage System, 510 feet long, over 1.5 times the length of a typical football pitch. We understand that the proposed pumping station must both drain surface water and pump it into the elevated on-site pond or basin. Will a UPS or uninterrupted power supply with dual source generator be an integral part of the proposed pumping station to cope with any utilities failure? The developers’ online statement is that Southern Water will seek to adopt both below ground drainage and the new pumping station.

Planning Variation Sought

Readers might like to know that Hayling Island Sailing Club is seeking a variation of an earlier planning permission for the grass field adjacent to the Lifeboat. A number of concerns, published earlier today, have already been raised by residents.

This is an important Meeting concerning Hayling's future.

Urgent: Lidl

This coming Friday November 10th is the deadline for everyone to make their comments - with reasons - on Lidl's revised application to build their store on the current green area on Manor Road near the roundabout. Regardless of whether or not one supports a Lidl locally, everyone needs to understand the consequences of changing this particular site to what is likely to be permanent commercial use at this sole road access to Hayling's semi urban south. Any large store must encourage maximum car useage 24/7 therefore the likely congestion consequences of Lidl's activity at that site must only add to the A3023 road problems. Remember: every comment counts so don't assume that if others make

Erosion Must be Tackled

October’s Storm Brian’s powerful sea waves that breached a few shingle banks and flood barriers to run down roads on Hayling’s southeastern coast, remind us of our Island’s vulnerability. HIRA’s October AGM and Public Meeting heard from our Havant Borough Council (HBC) officers that in a life-threatening emergency Category 1 event across our region, Portsmouth’s 120,000 population would inevitably take precedence in emergency response teams over Hayling’s 18,000 permanent residents. The Hampshire Fire and Rescue spokesman, who liaises fortnightly with all other Category 1 responders, stated that Hayling must work together to create its own Community Resilience, as required by the Civil Co
