HAMPSHIRE County Council plans to spend £600m on the county’s economy over the next three years.

The investment, which forms part of the authority’s capital programme, aims to create 8,000 new school places, improve roads and transport infrastructure, and build extra care units for the ageing population.

The programme has been endorsed by the council’s cabinet and will be discussed at the full cabinet meeting on Thursday.
