With Covid restrictions now behind us, HCS is resuming its programme of public meetings. The next meeting will be held at St Faith’s Church on Thursday 3 November 2022 at 07:00 PM.
HCS Public Meeting
This public meeting will be open to both members and non-members alike and will provide an opportunity to discuss some of the local issues which we face in and around St. Faith’s ward in Havant town.
The agenda for the meeting is being finalised and will be published on this page shortly, announced by a new post on the site so do please keep an eye on the website for details.
The agenda for the meeting can be viewed and downloaded by taking this link. The major topics include Regeneration and Economy, The Local Plan development, Planning and development control and Traffic management. If time permits, we will be able to discuss other topics during an AOB (‘any other business’) section at the end of the agenda.
To make the best use of the opportunity, we have invited the leadership team from Havant Borough Council to offer, where possible, their direct responses to questions raised.
Council Members who have confirmed attendance for the full meeting are:
- Cllr. Elizabeth Lloyd – Cabinet lead for ‘Local Plan, Environment and Water Quality’.
- Cllr. Tim Pike – St. Faith’s Ward councillor and Cabinet lead for ‘Levelling up’.
- Cllr. Phil Munday – St Faith’s Ward councillor.
Council members who have confirmed attendance for part of the meeting only are:
- Cllr. Alex Rennie – The Leader of the Council and portfolio owner for Regeneration will be present for the first 45 minutes only.
The Council members unable to attend in person are:
- Cllr. Lulu Bowerman, HCC representative for Emsworth and St. Faiths, is unable to attend due to matters of health. We wish her well.
- Cllr. Clare Satchwell and Cllr. Narinder Bains – have been asked not to attend by the Council Leader, Cllr. Alex Rennie.
- Cllr. Imogen Payter, St Faith’s Ward Councillor, has a prior engagement at a book-signing event with Cllr. Alex Rennie at the Conservative Club.
We are disappointed that Hampshire County Council Highways have declined our invitation to provide an officer to participate in traffic discussions. The HCC Executive Lead for Transport and Environment Strategy has provided a written statement which can be found here. This statement will doubtless be raised during the meeting.
