Jim takes a walk on the wet side
Many residents complain to us about puddles on the footways behind the Stubbington Green bus stop.
The paved area has been extended over the years, but vans and lorries are often parked on the grass, churning it up.
Jim Forrest has asked the Council if they will:
– Replenish the sunken surface on the informal path from the bus shelter to the toilets
– Reseed and raise the grassed areas close to the paths
– Resurface the asphalt where needed and ensure that council and contractors’ vehicles keep to the paved area.
But it’s also up to all of us to protect grass verges on our streets – do try to make sure your and your visitors’ cars aren’t churning the grass.

A special meeting of Fareham Council’s planning committee on November 17th examined details of IFA2, National Grid’s proposed Interconnector at Daedalus, and the proposed new public open space to be financed by it. They included:
● Details of access, appearance, landscaping and appearance of the new public open space.
● Revised details of the converter station buildings.
● Reports on converter station noise, interference, and electro-magnetic fields.
● TV and radio interference assessment.
Jim Forrest spoke at the meeting as one of his first duties on returning to the Council. Jim said: “The proposed open space is much bigger and better than any previous public space offered at Daedalus.
“But planners must ensure it doesn’t come at an unacceptable cost to residents. National Grid must be held firmly to their promised safeguards on noise, public health and aircraft safety.”
See the planning pages at www.fareham.gov.uk for more details on IFA2. We’ll keep you informed of further meetings as they arise.
