"Message from Cllr David Evans, EHDC Horndean Kings.

 

Following complaints to me from residents about the quality of some of the grass cutting that has at last been done, I have contacted the Contracts Manager at EHDC who has replied that:

 

“The Council is in the process of serving rectification notices on their contractor as they are as disappointed as Councillors and residents with the present state of the grass verges and green spaces for which the contractor is responsible”

 

In addition, residents can contact the Customer Service Centre on 0300 300 0013 to raise any issues they have.

 

TWO NEW COUNCILLORS ARE NEEDED NOW!!

 

Horndean Parish Council (HPC) has some interesting projects happening in the area like the exciting refurbishment of the playgrounds within the area due to start soon and lots of other enterprising schemes which will benefit the Community of Horndean.

 

Councillors are also pro-active on improving the environment making more use of social media and making the community aware of our beautiful woodlands and conservation areas available for everyone to enjoy.

 

People interested in standing for Council will be expected to engage with the Community and attend Council meetings, which usually take place on a Monday evening, be part of various committees within the Council, helping to put forward the views of the Parish on Planning and Environmental issues.  This can be both a rewarding and interesting work.

 

For more details please contact the Executive Officer to the Council Carla Baverstock-Jones on 02392 597766 or email contact@horndeanpc-hants.gov.uk

CATTLE GRAZING

Cattle are currently grazing on Hazelton Common and Catherington Down, this is an important management technique used on our sites. We aim to manage grazing responsibly in order to avoid further loss of rare bird, reptile and plant species and when grazing we take into consideration the specific characteristics of each site.

Hazelton Common is an important site as around 20 per cent of lowland heathland in the world is located in Britain. It is estimated that over 80 per cent of Britain's lowland hetath has disappeared since 1800. Grazing of domestic animals has helped shape lowland heath by preventing the natural succession towards woodland so is the preferred management technique used on our site.

Catherington Down is an area of unimproved calcareous grassland that contains a diverse range of chalk grassland flora. Grazing is providing a sward composition that benefits desired species. Grazing also limits the encroachment from scrub and tree species.

 

“Horndean Parish Council have recently had 3 Automated External Defibrillator’s (AED’s) installed at the following locations:

 

  •  Nicos Bakery (right hand side of the building, Blendworth Lane on the external wall)
  • Napier Hall (left hand side of the building, Portsmouth Road on the external wall)
  • Jubilee Hall (front of the building, Crouch Lane on the external wall)

 

Funding has been provided by District Councillors Mrs L Evans, Mrs E Tickell, G Shepherd and D Evans towards the cost of the purchase and installation, the remainder having been paid for by Horndean Parish Council.

 

The AED’s are automated and very accessible to members of the public for use. The code to unlock the cabinet to access the AED’s can be obtained from the emergency services. instructions on what to do in an emergency are clearly labelled on the front of all the cabinets.”
