Billy Trail Fencing

Regarding the fencing that I understand relatively recently appeared along the Billy Trail adjacent to the Sinah Field that is currently under Development Planning Application App/18/00724, this is relevant information: The land is owned by Hayling Island Builders Ltd and they are selling to Barratt, with whom they have an association. They are allowed to fence off the Billy Trail, in fact it was a requirement in the mitigation on this and the Oysters development to prevent dog walkers and their dogs scaring off the birds and stopping their flight path over the RSPB fields. Residents noted that this supposed mitigation was not put in place whilst the Oysters was being built so that the wi

Hayling Seafront

The future of Hayling seafront Help transform Hayling seafront Residents, visitors and businesses have an opportunity to shape how Hayling Island seafront is transformed - via an online survey set to go live this week. The survey aims to find out how four sites, owned by Havant Borough Council, can be used at Creek Road, Eastoke, Beachlands and West Beach before looking at the seafront as a whole. Working with HemingwayDesign, Havant Borough Council is looking to develop the ideas and vision to regenerate Hayling Island seafront with the possibility of gaining high quality mixed use developments for new homes and leisure facilities. Councillor Leah Turner, Cabinet lead for Communities, Devel

A3023 Report Available

Within a short period of time we expect Havant Borough Council (HBC) to bring forward their evaluation of the A3023 trunk road together with the associated impacts on the Island’s housing growth and their views and recommendations on the way forward. We are to be provided with a copy of the analyses one month in advance of their presentation to the Infrastructure Advisory Committee. The report, available from daveparham6@gmail.com or hello@haylingresidentsassociation.co.uk , headed by a 3-page summary, represents our residents’ views, expectations and requirements on these topics, against which we will be evaluating the HBC submission for the validity, completeness and relevance of the solut

Sinah Update

A HIRA member spoke to Planning this morning about the Sinah Lane Application and they advised him of the following: - The issue of the white planning notices was delayed so the deadline has been extended from 27 August to 4 September. - 5 planning notices have just today been displayed as follows: one at the entrance to the field, one at each end of North Shore Close, one at the entrance to the Billy Trail and one at Furniss Way. - The date of issue of the Highways Report is still unknown but may be as late as the end of the year. - A decision on the Barratt application will not be made until the Highways report has been issued. He has arranged for a waterproofed A3 poster boldly set out an

Parking Charges Hike

Residents are understandably angry about the Cabinet's recent decision to increase, in some cases by a huge amount, parking charges throughout the Borough and of course Hayling's popular car parks. HIRA's Committee shares their concerns about the knock-on effects on Hayling's vital Tourist Economy as well as on local residents' ability to enjoy Hayling's facilities. Having spoken directly to the shared East Hants. District Council and Havant Borough Council's Office for Parking based in Petersfield, I can confirm that parking charges throughout the Borough had been frozen for 5 years in order to support and encourage local businesses. However in 2016 new meters were installed to provide

HEXIT Petition

The Petition for sufficient signatures to trigger a debate and vote by our Council can be found either by inputting 'Change.org Havant Borough Council Petition' in the search bar or try the link below: https://www.change.org/p/havant-borough-council-hayling-island-council Over many years there has been considerable discussion and thought in support of Hayling having its own Council or Parish Council. In fact the same efforts in both Southsea and Emsworth failed for reasons perhaps linked to the additional cost levied to run it, so residents will need to approve that. A search on gov.uk, Parish Council formation, may also provide an idea of the time scale involved. Therefore, if part of th

Urgent: Sinah Comments

The application APP/18/00724 for the erection of 195 dwellings on the entire field North of Sinah Lane, is now live with the 27th August as the deadline for comments. Either enter Havant Borough Council then Planning then Search for... and enter this Application number or try the following direct link: https://planningpublicaccess.havant.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage HBC legally want all comments within 21 days! An extension to the legal date was requested on the grounds that it is a 'major' application and the fact that it is a holiday period for many residents, but to no avail. However, it is very likely we have longer to comment as they will accept

Sinah Latest

This is the latest update from Havant Borough Council Planning Officer Lewis Ford regarding Sinah Lane proposed development: An application has been submitted and is currently being checked to see if it is valid. To explain further, when an applicant submits an application to the council (whether for a minor or major application), an applicant must include certain information so that the council can gain the ‘’full picture’’ of the situation. This information, or better put, these requirements, are stated in our Local Requirement List. An application is only made valid, and thus considered an active application, if all of the information requirements are submitted. Until this has occurred,

Ferry Progress-At Last

The Hayling Ferry Working Party (HFWP), spear-headed and set up by resident Mark Coates, has worked very hard through many meetings this year to see tangible progress. Finally July’s Full Council Meeting approved the £20k remaining CIL moneys towards a Hayling minibus servicing the Ferry. Details need finalizing, but a Section 19 or 22 permit involving passengers’ donations is most likely. There must also be a decision on when this minimum 6 month trial will take place since we are already half way through the most lucrative period for the Ferry’s profitability. The current contract with Langstone Harbour Board results in a lean winter period with little reserve money – another area to be
