New Developments!

4 Hayling Deputations at yesterday's critical Council vote on the Local Plan, together with campaigners' intensive work behind the scenes with Cllr. Clare Satchwell recently, have had encouraging results for Hayling's future. It is still vitally important that everyone stays abreast of developing Local Plan issues. With a 6 week Consultation coming up, every one of us has to make relevant responses (following guidelines to be provided by HBC) all of which will be provided to the Inspector at the Examination in Public later this year. Ensure you use the HBC link to subscribe for latest information: https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/UKHAVANT/subscriber/new​ At Cabinet yesterday aftern

Broken Agreements

Twelve non-aligned, non-political residents’ groups’ representatives, appointed to Havant Borough Council’s Hayling Island Infrastructure Advisory Group in January 2017, walked out of the January 16th Infrastructure Advisory Meeting held at the Plaza, following a statement made to the Chairman, Cllr. Wilson, by Hayling resident Dave Parham. The reason for the walk-out was as follows. HBC had set up the Advisory Group expressly to engage the wider residential community with the profoundly serious issues of Hayling’s Infrastructure. We have been faithful in attending all the Infrastructure Presentations, using our respective professional experiences to question major Service Providers and ma

Advisory Group Side-lined

12 non-aligned residents’ representatives, members of Havant Borough Council’s appointed Hayling Island Infrastructure Advisory Group in January 2017, walked out at the beginning of yesterday’s January 16th Infrastructure Advisory Meeting held at the Plaza following a statement made to the Chairman Cllr. Wilson by Hayling resident Dave Parham. The reason for the walk-out was as follows.

Railway Cottages Petition

There is a petition called Save the Railway Cottages, which now has over 1,000 comments. These 18th century cottages are Grade 2 listed, in Langstone Conservation Area and can be readily viewed immediately to the west of the A3023 Havant Road. We have over 50 images of them, taken from inside and out, which show how they were constructed, so that they could be faithfully restored. I have also written a piece for the January Hayling Islander. Perhaps members of HIRA and NEHRA etc would like to add their comments, as we are assured that Havant Borough Council is on the case and we wish to support them. https://www.change.org/p/havant-borough-council-save-the-railway-cottages Sign the Petitio

Beware Scams!

Please could you make sure any vulnerable people out there are aware we have got some problems on the Island. These scams all occurred since Christmas.

A couple of guys going around who are knocking on the doors of vulnerable people and stating they notice there is a roof problem and that they can fix it for them before the bad weather which would make it a lot worse and more expensive. It is a rip off. Unfortunately the rogue traders are plausible and have already managed to get some money. Please make sure that your elderly and vulnerable friends do not fall for this. An elderly female paid £2,500 to get roof repaired. Scam 2. A pe
