A COUNCIL is to spend more than £1m on community projects and infrastructure.
The investment to be made by Havant Borough Council is funded by the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), a charge paid by developers based on the size and type of development they will build.
Councillors decided the CIL funds would be spent on creating a new route between Park House Farm Way and Hulbert Road for mobility vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, while upgrading the surrounding footpath network in Bushy Lease; improving the three-lane link road between the A27 ‘teardop’ junction and the Rusty Cutter roundabout, Bedhampton; and establishing a new cycle and pedestrian ‘toucan’ crossing on Hambledon Road near the new Milton Road roundabout in Waterlooville.

Bids for the next round of funding should be submitted between June 29 and August 10.
