MINSTEAD MAIL JUNE 2019
We have resorted to emergency procedures this month to distribute printed copies of Minstead Mail! It has been hand delivered by your Parish Councillors and Clerk who hope they have covered every household. If you have not received one and would like one please let us know either by email to email@example.com or by ringing our Clerk on 023 8081 2375 but please note that you can also read it on line by visiting the Village Community website.
Many thanks to the Parish Council team for taking on this task at short notice.
A31 MINSTEAD CATTLE GRID IMPROVEMENTS
Further to last week’s notice many will have received a further letter from Highways England stating that Kier Highways’ work to bring the current cattle grid located off the A31 up to current specification is now expected to start on Monday 8th July (not 1st July) and will take place over 5 days. Lyndhurst Road will be closed between the A31 and Seamans Corner which means no access to and from the A31 westbound at the Seamans lane junction. Signed diversion routes will be in place.
HAMPSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL CONSULTATION – BALANCING THE BUDGET
HCC is asking for residents’ and stakeholders’ views on ways to balance its budget in response to growing demands on council services and continuing pressures on local government funding.
By April 2021 the County Council will be facing an anticipated budget shortfall of £80 million. With less money available and growing demand for council services decisions will need to be made about what it can and cannot provide in the future.
The County Council would like to hear your views on the following options for balancing its budget as well as any alternatives you may wish to propose:
- introducing and increasing charges for some services
- encouraging central Government to make legislative changes
- generating additional income
- continuing to use the County Council’s reserves prudently
- reducing and changing services
- increasing Council Tax
- changing local government arrangements in Hampshire
To find out more and complete the consultation on line visit
You can also request an information pack and response form in Braille, audio or large print by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing 0300 555 1375.
Please not that the consultation ends on Wednesday 17th July.
