Chairman's Report

Minutes:

The Chair was pleased to see so many people in attendance on the recreation ground for the Remembrance Service on 11 November 2018.  More wreaths were laid than ever before with the largest ever attendance. The new monolith and names attracted a large crowd and was very well received.  The names were provided by the Royal British Legion for the parish of Eastleigh. 

 

The Chair thanked Councillor Mann for representing the Council at the Remembrance events in Paris over the weekend.  Councillor Irish would be doing the same in Kornwestheim this weekend.

 

The Chair announced that the Christmas Light switch on would take place on Saturday 17 November; culminating in a fireworks display at 6pm.  There would be over 100 stalls in the town.

Public Participation

Minutes:

Simon Payne addressed the Committee regarding the four hour waiting bays on Cherbourg Road.  There was space for five vehicles but these were currently being used by local businesses.  The problem was compounded by properties that had been converted into flats without sufficient parking.  Mr Payne questioned whether these bays could become two hour waiting restrictions.  The Chair replied that there was scope to change the limited waiting restrictions but it is unlikely to be high on the priority list as the Committee had a large list of schemes.  Unfortunately there is very little that can be done about commercial vehicles if they were parked legally.  There had been an indication from Hampshire County Council that two and four hour bays will become metred but the Council was awaiting the detail.

 

Mr Payne also queried, in the case of properties converted to Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO); did the occupants qualify for residents or visitors permits?  The Chair replied in the cases of HMOs and ‘garden grab’ developments that only the owner was entitled to residential and visitors permits if they were still living in the property.
