Chair's report

Minutes:

Woodhouse Lane

 

The Chair was pleased to confirm that agreement had been reached with Hampshire County Council concerning the planning obligations for the development at Woodhouse Lane. This would enable work to commence on site for the delivery of Deer Park School which was currently forecasted to be September 2021.

 

Discussions with Wildern Academy Trust and the County Council would be arranged to complete a community use agreement and further planning applications to enhance the outdoor sports provision.

 

Former Budgens site, Hedge End

 

Demolition of the former Budgens building is planned for January 2020. The car park will have to be closed at this time because of health and safety issues. However the contractor has been advised that this closure period must be as short as practically possible.

 

The alternative Park and Stride sites at Turnpike Way and B&Q will be promoted to Wildern School and Shamblehurst School whilst the car park is closed.

 

Local councillors were very keen to keep the car park open during this year’s festive period and have also decided that the trial opening times will continue for the remainder of 2019.

 

Public Art in West End

 

The official opening of the “Knot” sculpture on the old Moorgreen Hospital site took place on 24 July. The Chair thanked West End Parish Council for the excellent hospitality provided by members of the Hatch Café.

 

The Heritage Marker project was progressing as the design has been approved. Agreement on the locations of the three markers is now being sought.

 

Boorley Park

 

The new community centre and sports pavilion have been built to a high standard and it was hoped that practical completion will be achieved in the next month.

 

After this has been secured, the buildings will be fitted out. The link road from Maddoxford Lane needs to be opened and safe access must be in place before these buildings can be used by the public.

 

Ageas Bowl Liaison Panel

 

During the Cricket World Cup, there were an unprecedented number of complaints about parking, mainly in West End. A review of the cricket season will be completed for this Committee and the Ageas Bowl Liaison Panel meeting.

 

The Liaison Panel meeting will be held on Thursday 14 November from 7.15pm at the Ageas Bowl.

 

Local residents are invited to attend and to participate in the meeting.

Local Area Manager's Report

Minutes:

Resolved – the Committee noted the Local Area Manager’s report as detailed below:

 

Hatch Farm

 

A site meeting between the Borough Council and West End Parish Council had been arranged for mid - October. The community provision will be discussed including the play area, skate park and open space proposals.

 

Barnsland will also be included given its proximity to the site.

 

It is then envisaged that a working group will be established to progress these projects.

 

Wildern Swimming Pool

 

The Council’s Project Manager had been working with the contractor to agree a final price for the pool roof project. A financial report had been written for this Committee and if approved, work is expected to commence in November 2019 with a likely completion in June 2020.

 

The Wildern Management Committee had also approved expenditure of £45,000 for the upgrade of the pool changing rooms.  

 

Hedge End green routes

 

An artist had been appointed to deliver a public art wayfinding scheme which would focus on linking existing routes and destinations.

 

This pilot project would be launched initially in Hedge End and then rolled out to surrounding areas to promote our green and healthy borough to residents and visitors alike.

 

Speed limit reminders

 

The Council had acquired a speed limit reminder device which had new graphics and displays the speed of the vehicle. This would be trialled in the forthcoming weeks across the Borough.

 

The first site would be in Kings Copse Avenue following a spate of accidents in the last three months.

 

It was hoped this device could be located in other hotspots within the local area and Councillors had already identified further locations.

 

 

 

 

Ratcliffe Road, Hedge End

 

Residents had approached Ward Councillors to help resolve the parking issues in Ratcliffe Road. This was not a Committee obligation however funding was approved and the Council’s Construction and Maintenance Team has completed the groundworks.

 

Tree planting would commence shortly.

 

Residents had been in contact to thank the Committee.

 

Wildflower areas

 

Councillors had considered sites for the planting of wildflowers in the local area. These could be verges, roundabouts, car parks, open spaces and country parks.

 

This project would provide an improved environment and would also sustain pollinating insects such as bees and associated wildlife.
