Chair's Report

Minutes:

The Chair reported that virtual ceremonies would be held to commemorate Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day as public gatherings at the memorial were not possible. It was recognised that not all residents had digital access so residents, schools and local businesses were asked to put poppies on the bandstand in Eastleigh as a visual tribute to those who had lost their lives serving their country. A doorstep silence was also encouraged and for residents to decorate their homes with poppies.

 

The Chair confirmed that there would be Christmas lights and a tree on display in Eastleigh town centre, but the fireworks had been cancelled due to Covid.  Further details about activities to celebrate the festive season were to be released in the next few weeks. 

 

The Chair thanked Scott Steel and the Team at Kamm Civil Engineering Limited who had provided, free of charge, the labour plant machinery, sub soil and top soil to complete the mounds on the Lawn Road Recreation Ground. It was confirmed that the Stoneham Park play areas were now open. 

 

The Chair announced that the Administration Committee had agreed to conduct a Community Governance Review to consult with Eastleigh residents whether they would like the non-parished area of Eastleigh to become parished as this would give local residents a greater control over community assets and would enable them to have more input into local decision-making. The public consultation will take place later this year.

Emergency Motion - Stoneham Lane Football Complex

To consider the following Emergency Motion, to be moved by Councillor Bourne, and seconded by Councillor Campbell:

 

“That this Local Area Committee notes that we are extremely lucky to have the fantastic Stoneham lane football complex on our doorstep so that boys, girls and adults can play the beautiful game and AFC Stoneham have an amazing new home ground. Disappointingly the access to this facility under the motorway bridge has a large number of lights not working and the access from the overflow car park does not have a safe pedestrian crossing. The Local Area Committee calls upon Hampshire County Council and  Highways England  to treat these issues with the upmost of urgency. Hundreds of children access this facility every week and need to do so safely especially with the evenings getting darker.

The Committee were updated as follows:

 

  HCC Highways have confirmed no in principle objection to the additional highways information submitted but full formal comments are awaited.

  An updated Air Quality Assessment had now been received. This concludes that the development will have a negligible impact on local air quality but comments are awaited from the Council’s Environmental Health Officer.

  Comments have now been received from the Council’s Ecologist on the additional information submitted – no objection has been raised subject to conditions concerning drainage, landscaping and any vegetation clearance works.

  Conditions regarding site contamination had now been agreed – these conditions accord with those recommended by Environmental Health and the Environment Agency in their formal consultation responses but allow a phased approach where different areas of the site would be developed / brought into use before others.

  Minor changes had been made to the wording of conditions 7 and 8 (hours controls and external storage heights) for clarity.

 

RESOLVED -

 

Subject to:

 

  i)  The completion of outstanding consultations in respect of highways and air quality;
