Winchester City Council is set to hold an additional pair of meetings in Waterlooville for people living in Denmead, Southwick and Widley.

Following positive feedback on the plans, they will enable residents to share views on a potential new authority to serve the west of Waterlooville – an area pencilled to house 3,000 new homes and supporting infrastructure.

As part of the consultations, people will have their say on the name, format, precise boundaries and electoral composition of a new body.
