South Hampshire

South Hampshire Ray Bellinger

Autumn/Winter 2018

Latest update from our district group in South Hampshire. This update was produced for our twice yearly newsletter, Hampshire Views. Please check the rest of the News section of the website for more recent updates.

We’ve seen another busy six months for the South District Group with most of my time being taken up working on a response to the Eastleigh Local Plan.

This represented the culmination of the last two years of analysis of Eastleigh’s plans and reports and I worked closely with ADD and the local Parish Councils. The response included commissioning expert reports on the landscape and a Geographic Information System (GIS) study of South Hampshire.

I have continued to support the Keep it Green – Support a South Hampshire Green Belt campaign, meeting with local council leaders and presenting to the PUSH committee in June. This was a positive meeting with the Council Leaders agreeing to ask their planning officers to further investigate the viability of a Green Belt in South Hampshire.

In addition to the Eastleigh Local Plan I have continued to respond to other local planning issues in the area, including an application in Eastleigh for a hotel in a strategic gap and the 40 Acre application in Havant. This has also included meeting with other amenities groups, environmental groups and action groups in Eastleigh, Fareham and Havant.

I also attended a very interested conference, ‘Making ends meet: The lived experience of poverty in the South’ produced by the Southern Policy Centre in collaboration with the University of Southampton on behalf of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
