Ferry Good News!

At this week's Ferry Working Party Group residents were delighted to hear the news that Councillors on both sides of Langstone Harbour have finally agreed to put in place buses that will link with Hayling's Ferry. For residents and tourists alike it's really important to keep in mind that not only the Ferry but any bus transport must be self-financing. What does this mean for everyone? We must use all of these facilities! The new operator, Mike Elgin, of Emsworth and District Buses, has agreed to a 28 seater bus, wheelchair friendly, short chassis and the route is under discussion but so far the preferred route covers: Ferry Road from the Ferryboat Inn, eastwards along Sea Front Road then

Parking Charges

In its July Committee Meeting HIRA discussed HBC’s planned parking increase. In the Cabinet's June 27th Meeting it was stated that the last parking review was in 2013. HIRA has asked Hayling Councillors why there has been such a delay which appears to have resulted in increased parking charges by as much as 50% in some cases. On the Council's website can be found, under Meetings, then Cabinet Meetings, reference to the June 27th Meeting and both the Agenda, Documents and Draft Minutes; these can all be viewed online and both at the Plaza and our Library. Details of the charges - current and proposed - can be seen for the whole Borough. The Season Ticket increase is due to increase by 20

Room for Improvement

It’s great to read Hayling West Beach has Blue Flag status, but there is concern regarding Budd Farm’s occasional effluent discharges following heavy rainfall. Langstone Harbour Board website’s online notifications, provided by Southern Water, of untreated Discharge Notifications show 44 for May 2nd-30th inclusive. Hayling’s Infrastructure Delivery Draft (online) sketches Southern Water’s possible ability, based on Dry Weather and ideally 2.5 occupancy households, to cope with the projected housing demand but also confirms issues of odour and contamination management. That aside, our beaches urgently need much improved waste collection and facilities as well as wheelchair access to the Blue

Mengham Post Office ATM

The following is the P.O. Chief Executive's Office reply to my fully detailed request, urging them to re-consider their closure of Mengham's Post Office ATM: Thank you for your email of 31 May to our POL board. I am so sorry that it’s taken so long to come back to you with a full response. As you may already be aware, unfortunately an attempted gas attack on the ATM facility at Hayling Island Post Office, resulted in damage to the machine, at this point our ATM partner, Bank of Ireland, decided to remove this facility instead of repairing the machine; this decision was wholly based on the very low number of customers using this ATM. Together, we also considered whether or not the nearby ban
