Chair's Report

Minutes:

The Chair paid tribute to long-serving county and borough councillor, Colin Davidovitz, who had sadly passed away. He stated that he was a gentleman and it had been a privilege to lose to him to elections previously.

 

Councillor Grajewski agreed and added that he was a man who ‘got things done’.

 

Councillor Broadhurst added that he had served with Colin Davidovitz for many years and he was a formidable opponent inside the Council chambers, but the ‘nicest guy you could meet’ outside of them.

 

The Chair mentioned that the community was still struggling from the effects of the pandemic and the challenges that lockdowns had presented. He confirmed that Chandler’s Ford and Hiltingbury Local Area Committee had received £10,000 bounce back money to help local shops with their recovery.

 

The Chair stated that the Parish Liaison meetings were working well.

 

The Chair was pleased to see the bench in Hursley Road had been reinstalled, the sign was up in Vinings Copse and that work on the Hiltingbury Lakes project continued.

 

The Chair was pleased that people had enjoyed fireworks around the Borough, but recognised that there was a lot of noise and disruption from them late at night that would have disturbed children and animals.

Minutes:

The Chair used his discretion to hear Agenda Items 7 and 8 ahead of Agenda Item 6.

 

Consideration was given to a report of the Local Area Manager (Agenda item 6) that contained recommendations for expenditure from the Committee’s developer contributions.

 

Councillor Grajewski requested further clarity in future reports of how the fees and charges were laid out in Recommendation 4 of the report.

 

The Executive Head of Neighbourhood Services and the Local Area Manager were working on a Project initiation Document (PID), Flexford Corporate Project, that should be finished in January and if approved could possibly provide some funds towards the work.

 

RESOLVED –

 

That the Committee:

(1)  Approved the allocation of £1,170 to install three dual waste bins, two along Templars Way and one along Winchester Road.

(2)  Approved the allocation of £400 to replace and install a new notice board at Vinings Copse.

(3)  Approved the allocation of £3,552 to replace three benches, one along Hursley Road and two along Winchester Road.

(4)  Approved the proposed fees and charges for 2022 set out in Appendix 1.

(5)  Noted the new revenue line for Youth expenditure, which was created from the underspend from discretionary expenditure lines, set out in Appendix 2.

(6)  Noted the feasibility study conducted for the Flexford Nature Reserve, set out in Appendix 3.

(7)  Noted that Youth Options were successful in a joint local area tender process to provide youth provision in Chandlers Ford & Hiltingbury in 2022.

(NOTE: Councillor Grajewski voted against Recommendation 4 in the report.

Friends of Flexford spoke in response to Recommendation 6 in the report, agreeing that it was a valuable document and that they hoped the money could be found to support it fully and that they encouraged and supported the Local Area Committee to ensure that the steps were fully carried out and an action plan put in place. It was mentioned that there were four areas of concern missing in the report - three lengths of footpath that needed widening, the pathway from the railway line stepping up to the footbridge, the two sleeper bridges in the middle of the meadow alongside North Millers Dale and a deep mud hole in the woodland path filled with a log and covered by four other logs.)
