Councillors Surgery

Councillors Surgery

Come along and meet your Labour Brighton Hill Councillors at their monthly residents surgery at Brighton Hill Community School. We will be there between 10 and 12am.

Got something you would like to get off your mind or would like to chat about the Brighton Hill Roundabout proposals – why not just pop in.

A30 and Brighton Hill Roundabout

A30 and Brighton Hill Roundabout

Hampshire County Council Proposals are for the Brighton Hill roundabout to be widened to 4 lanes.

There will be no entry onto the roundabout from Western Way and traffic lights on all 5 remaining entries, underpasses to be retained, and new crossings with the traffic lights.

A public consultation is going live on Sept 3rd and will run until October 1st.

The preferred scheme will then be agreed in November, with a submission for funding in December with a view to securing the provisional £18.6m set aside to cover the scheme and initial work on other improvements further down the A30 towards Kempshott, Hatch Warren and the M3. Work is expected to start in 2020.

I will publish more details once the consultation is live.

TRAVELLERS HAVE LEFT GERSHWIN ROAD!
We have been on to the out of hours line to see if we can make the site secure. we have also left messages for council officers to see Monday morning.

In Winklebury, a second lot entered the Hants FA site 2 days later before the council team had got round to clearing up / securing from the first ones.

Many thanks to the residents who reported this in to me so quickly. The Police have been made aware and I spoke with the police on site, who tell me that at present the group are being co-operative and pleasant.

I have also report in to the Councils hotline and encampment officers, so that they have this when they arrive at their desks on Monday.

It can take about two weeks (often four weeks) for legal processes to take place.

You can use this link to see what the Council is required to do legally.

In the meantime, in the unlikely event you experience any problems please call 101 so it is logged and actioned by the police.

We will update as soon as we have more news.
