Public Participation

Minutes:

Margaret Billard, a resident of Foord Road, raised a query regarding the on-going development behind her property. She was of the understanding that a retaining wall would be erected by the developer behind the carport. This had not taken place and she was now concerned that her property, and that of her neighbour, would be affected by subsidence.

 

In response, Councillor Garton, the local ward Councillor, advised that she would follow up on Mrs Billard’s concerns.

Local Area Committee report

Minutes:

The Chairman reported the following:

 

Boorley Green Working Group

 

The Group comprised representatives of Botley Parish Council, Eastleigh Borough Council and the Developers’ Consortium had met twice since the last Local Area Committee meeting. Consultation on the design of the community centre and also the Pavilion had been on-going. The Parish Council had now presented options to the Consortium for their consideration.

 

The Council’s Planning Officer was awaiting amendments and final comment on the remaining dwellings and reserved matters, the plans for the local enterprise centre, and the extension to the hotel. The primary school application was being submitted by Hampshire County Council.

 

A public art steering group was going to be established and representatives from the Parish and the Borough Council would join this group along with the new Neighbourhood Development Worker who would be appointed within the next three months.

 

Responses to residents’ and Councillors’ requests

 

During the past few months the following works had been funded by this Committee:

 

·  Two litter bins were installed near Ambleside and Sovereign Drive in Botley

 

·  A bus shelter in King’s Copse Avenue was repaired

 

·  A major culvert in Barbe Baker Avenue was cleared by the Council’s Direct Services team

 

·  Safety measures including signage for the boardwalk at the back of Berrywood School had also been authorised

 

Eastleigh Sport and Physical Activity Alliance (SPAA) Awards

 

On 13 February 2017, the seventh Eastleigh SPAA awards evening was staged at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, West End. Compered by BBC Radio Solent’s Kevan James, the evening celebrated the achievements of local people who were mainly participants, coaches, officials and volunteers. The Ageas Bowl provided the perfect venue to recognise the sporting talent within the Borough.

 

Townhill Farm and Carpathia Close Play Areas

 

On 16 February 2017, the Chairman was joined by children from Townhill Junior School and Noah’s Ark Pre-School to celebrate the official opening of the play areas at Townhill Farm and Carpathia Close. Residents had commented that the play areas are very busy with children enjoying the new equipment and he was therefore delighted that this Committee, and West End Parish Council, supported the upgrading of these two important community facilities.

Consideration was given to the report of the Area Manager in partnership with Hedge End, West End and Botley (HEWEB) Youth Council (Agenda item 6) that invited Members to endorse the recommendations of this year’s Youth Grants Panel and to extend their thanks to the volunteers who had participated in the decision making process.

The HEWEB Youth Council had made specific efforts to ensure that equality and diversity implications were taken into account throughout its deliberations. Grant decisions had been made taking into account the key guidance of ‘Every Child Matters’ and the Children’s Act 2004. 

 

RESOLVED -

(1)  That the recommendations of the Hedge End, West End and Botley (HEWEB) Youth Council for HEWEB youth grants as shown in Appendix 1 be endorsed;
