District Council News - No bonfires please

To protect the health and wellbeing of everyone during the coronavirus outbreak, we are requesting that residents refrain from lighting bonfires. Many residents who would normally be out at work or school are now confined to their homes. Smoke could deny your neighbours from enjoying their garden and have a serious impact on their health - especially where they are self-isolating due to medical conditions such as asthma or heart disease.

Any garden waste can be either composted or collected together until such time as other more appropriate disposal methods are available. Household waste and recyclable waste should be put into the respective waste bins as normal to await collection.

Safety improvements brought forward for Golden Pot Crossroads                  2nd January 2020

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council, said: “Following recent accidents at this crossroads, I’d like to reassure residents that our team has met with the local county councillor, town council, district council, Shalden Parish Council and local residents to discuss planned safety improvements at the junction.

“Safety is a key priority for the County Council and I’m pleased that we’re able to expedite safety work on the junction.  We plan to have teams start on site in the Spring on an initial package of works which will include an additional Stop sign, vegetation clearance to provide better visibility for drivers, improved road markings on the Shalden approach, narrowing of the junction and improvements to the areas where buses stop, providing a safer place for passengers to wait. 

“We also plan to install anti-skid surfacing to give better traction for drivers coming out of the side roads – this work is weather dependant, so will most likely done later on in the Spring or early Summer.  Additionally, we will investigate the possibility of adjusting the highway boundary to further improve visibility for drivers approaching the junction, and carry out speed surveys on the approaches to the junction to see if a lower speed limit is viable and likely to be supported by the police.”
