Draft Sept Home

September 2018

The 2018 Havant Civic Society Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday September 26th at 7:30pm in St Faith’s Church.  We look forward to seeing you there.  If you get the chance, please take the opportunity of completing our questionnaire ahead of the AGM.  Even if you can’t be at the meeting, we would appreciate your responses.

AGM 2018 poster webThe HCS Committee has not been idle over the long, hot summer. We’ve been keeping tabs on various planning applications, attending meetings on environmental matters and generally keeping our fingers ‘on the pulse’.

Among the issues currently under scrutiny are the planning application for 39 West Street, the subject of our August home page, new housing developments proposed for the northern boundary of St Faiths on Barton’s Road and the development of the Forty Acre fields at Bedhampton. While some of these might appear to be outside of our more traditional ‘town centre’ remit, the significant increase in the residential population proposed presents a significant opportunity for Havant Town centre.  With Havant now poised to provide the central hub for these new residential communities, we are looking to Havant Borough Council to rise to the challenge and invest in the quality and appearance of the town centre.

After ten long years, derelict brownfield sites like 44-54 West street can no longer be tolerated.D7C_6914
