Shalden Parish Council

Highways

Southwood Road will be closed on Monday 29th April. This is for pothole patching work and also repairs to Stancombe Lane, which may cross over into Tuesday 30th. Hampshire Highways say that they will do their best to allow access to residents but please be patient if patching work is taking place. The majority of the patching work is likely to be at the New Odiham Road end of Southwood Road so access may be easier using Shalden Lane. Southwood Road will be closed on Monday 29th April.

Please open the documents below to find out more about the community funded initiative scheme, which has been shared with the parish council by Mark Kemp-Gee. This may be an option for traffic calming on the Old Odiham Road, and will be debated at the next parish council meeting.

During the winter months, Hampshire County Council receives a detailed local road surface weather forecast at midday, every day.  When they receive a forecast of wet and freezing road conditions, they carry out precautionary salting of first priority roads.

A topic that is commonly discussed at both the Annual Parish Meeting (APM) and at regular Parish Council meetings is issues with local roads. At the APM this year, our County Councillor, Mark Kemp-Gee informed those present that the correct route to do this is to use the Hampshire County Council website. Please make use of this site to report a problem, it will be the most efficient way to resolve the issue that you report. The website shows a map that you can use to identify the location of the problem that you have found and provide details. Once reported you can receive updates about the progress on your report. If you visit the website, by zooming in on the map, you can see all of the recent issues that have been reported and check on progress in rectifying them. When you make your report, please make a note of the reference number.

The link below can be used to report issues on both highways and footpaths. You can for example report mud on the road, an uneven surface or traffic lights that are not working. You can also upload photos to help the team assess the problem that you report.

To report a pothole, please use the website below.

Please bear it in mind that issues reported must be specific - a particular problem at a specific location. If you report an issue but do not get a response in two weeks, please contact me so that I can chase it up for you. I have found these websites very useful for reporting a range of issues in our parish and all were resolved. I think that it helps if you are able to, to take a photo of the problem and upload it when you make the report on the website.
