Tournerbury Ring Fort

We understand that there is a Scheduled Monument Tournerbury Ring Fort 2000+ yrs old, with adjacent Plantation, privately owned with no public access to them but which may be damaged by vehicles and people accessing the proposed wedding venue site. If you have any relevant views on this issue, please visit HBC Planning Site APP/19/00889 to read background documents and decide whether or not to make your own comments for or against. Please note: as a self-help Association it is incumbent on each member to take active interest in matters affecting the Island and its future.

HIRA Audience Grills NORSE Southeast

The majority of those attending our recent AGM put excellent questions for over an hour to NorseSE's Peter Vincent and Bob Bedford. Mr. Vincent made copious notes and promised to follow up every issue. An abiding theme was the need for there to be supervisory follow-up of NorseSE's staff re their work on Hayling so everyone should be sure to bring to Mr. Vincent's attention, by email or letter, any future concerns they may have. Recycling and Waste Management is very clearly a hot topic that we neglect at our peril: Havant only recycles around 30% of its waste rather than the 50% national target already achieved in many areas. A member later highlighted that 2 days later Sunday Politics

Nitrates & Developments

Monday's October 28th 2019 Operations & Place-Shaping Board Meeting (Agenda and papers available from HBC) gave its Councillor Panel members the opportunity re Agenda Item 5 to hear and question Southern Water, Environment Agency, Natural England (Government body) and Cabinet member covering planning Cllr. Tim Pike. Disappointingly, we understand that principally only the Chair, Cllr. Sue Lloyd (Purbrook, controversial Campdown Dev't proposed in her Ward), and Cllr. Clare Satchwell pressed questions and concerns of these bodies. Apparently the dominant argument appears to be that building development will produce fewer nitrates than agriculture and therefore is preferable. But what of moder

Summary by Ray Cobbett, organizer, of the Havant Friends of the Earth Meeting 24-09-19 "Impact of the Development on Solent Waters" with Guest Speakers from Portsmouth Water and Havant Borough Council: Tuesday’s meeting on nitrate pollution was absolutely packed with residents including some from Hayling.

Healthy Island

Congratulations to Jerry and Elise for putting together an Island-focussed newspaper, a truly local venture, good for the whole community on so many levels. Hayling’s Infrastructure Advisory Group, comprising Service Providers and residents’ groups, is still waiting to view Havant Borough Council’s re-worked Hayling Transport Assessment. Despite repeated requests to continue contributing valuable input, the Group’s residents can now only hope for a truly ‘sustainable’ Assessment result later this Autumn. At an ‘Environmental Forum’ presentation by Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership, HIRA and other local residents’ groups were reminded that Hayling’s mid-western and eastern coastlines will be
