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.

Brockhampton West – Outline planning application now up for comment

Regeneration at last! And with an ‘allowcation’ of parking and a ‘garden balconey’ they’re being marketed in stile.
