Shaun Cunningham, chairman of Inform Fareham Group, is urging residents to take part in the planning process

Hampshire County Council currently has two important public consultations running and Inform Fareham-Focus would urge residents across the Borough to participate and have their say.

Both road schemes are being described as strategically important to relieve traffic congestion, especially on the local road network around Stubbington and to ensure good traffic passage to the new Daedalus Enterprise zone from the West.

The Stubbington bypass plans are reasonably well known to local residents.

However, the second road scheme on land to the east of Newgate Lane effecting residents surrounding Woodcot Lane Fareham, is much less recognised.

Talking to residents, one can find expressions for and against both schemes so it’s vital residents have their say.

There will be a public exhibition held on Thursday, September 3 at Holy Rood Church, Stubbington between 1pm and 7pm, which will be followed by a special Community Action Team meeting between 7pm- 8.30pm.

Officers from Hampshire County Council will be at both events to address any questions or concerns the public may have.

Hampshire have sent out 2,000 letters to residents of Stubbington and Titchfield.

However, Inform Fareham take the view both projects are major pieces of infrastructure and the wider community should be aware of the planned schemes and thus have opportunity to comment.

Both projects will service the wider community and so it is essential the broader community make their views known.

Proposal :Application no.:P/15/0718/CC

Proposal Application no.P/15/0717/CC
