The next step in Portsmouth Water’s ‘master plan’ for their site is about to break cover. It appears that the concerns of nearby residents and Bosmere patients have been ignored.
Planning Committee overturns Planning Officers’ recommendation, unanimously voting for an ‘unsatisfactory living environment’
Some further depressing analysis of the recent elections, with a few messages for the new councillors and for those who didn’t vote.
Regeneration for Havant? Why not start with Ultrafast Broadband. You can help make this happen!
The expanding population of Havant desperately needs the new community hospital facilities planned for the old Oak Park School site. Twelve years on, it remains empty, overgrown and litter strewn. Why?
Watch before you cast that ballot! A video replay of the HCS St Faith’s election hustings. The verdict? We wanted four votes each so we could get them all on the Council!
We try and explain why the ‘Last Mile Delivery’ hub proposed for the former Pfizer site in New Lane could be the planning application which breaks the town’s back. It’s a long read but an important one that your councillors really should get their heads around.
Last Mile Madness. This planning application would flood the town with almost 5,500 extra HGV, LGV, and car movements a day, 7 days a week, from the heart of New Lane and past a house near you. It might even be yours!
The real numbers buried within, or oddly left out of, the New Lane Pfizer site application
The Warblington A27 Junction and the Southleigh ‘Spine’ road – unveiled.

The long running planning saga of ‘Aura House’, AKA ‘2A, New Road Bedhampton’, formerly ‘Three Billboards outside Bedhampton Station’.
Havant Borough Council’s Housing Delivery Action Plan falls woefully short on ‘actions’.
HBC get tangled up in a mess of their own making with the Southleigh Park development application.
A result for Bedhampton residents as HBC’s Development Management Committee finds no material change in Bargate’s ‘vexatious’ re-application.
Brockhampton West update. More ‘done deals’ and a disturbing absence of scrutiny. There goes the family silver again?
HBC’s leadership team forced to hang out their dirty laundry in public. Interesting viewing and perhaps a few lessons we should learn?
Three revised applications for the derelict land between East Street and the Pallant. Lots to read and comment on by Nov 13.
And here comes the fourth! Newly submitted plans for 5-7 East Street could provide the missing piece in a town centre jigsaw puzzle.
Latest plans for the old Southern Electric site at the Petersfield Road / Bartons Road junction

The Sinah Lane application. Havant Borough Residents embrace the new HBC ‘digital first’ communication strategy rather more fully than the DMC
