38.

Public Participation

Minutes:

Mr Lange raised a number of issues to the Committee:

 

·  Requested parking restrictions on Bournemouth Road to prevent pavement parking in front of the dwellings near Selwoods.  Disabled people and mums with buggies were struggling to negotiate the spaces left between parked cars;

·  Asked the Committee to be aware of the planning application to demolish 103 Bournemouth Road: the development could be reduced in size at application stage but increased under permitted development.  This was completely out of character with the area and had a significant impact on the local area;

·  Proposed that the Committee created community seating and planting for wildlife with a mural and stonework at the disused toilets at Central Precinct; and

·  Asked that the Committee looked into the state of repair of the Fryern footpath which had been adopted by the Council and was in need of resurfacing.

 

The Chair and Local Area Manager thanked Mr Lange for raising his concerns.  The planning application he had referred to was actually in the Eastleigh Local Area Committee area but the Chair would forward the concerns raised; and the footpath was the responsibility of Hampshire County Council but the Area Manager would be in contact with them.  The other issues would be considered by the Committee’s working group.
