Remembrance Day 2020

 

Due to the restrictions placed on mass gatherings, regrettably Horndean Parish Council will cancel both the annual Remembrance Day Parade and Carol Service for 2020. This was resolved at a recent Council meeting in adherence to Government Guidelines in respect of Covid-19.

We appreciate that many of our residents will be disappointed with this news. However, please bear in mind that we have a responsibility to keep our residents, staff and contractors safe.

Members of the Council will mark the occasion by privately laying wreaths.

Council would like to invite the members of the public to make private arrangements to place crosses, wreaths etc at the memorial in the square.  Please do so safely and ensuring that you keep your distance from other members of the public.

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)

COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE LEVY: NEIGHBOURHOOD PORTION

The District Council collects a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) on certain developments including residential developments and retail.

The majority of the levy is spent on major infrastructure projects, however 15% of the amount collected has to be spent in  the area where development is taking place, in agreement with the local community.  This is referred to as the ‘Neighbourhood Portion’ which can be spent on a wide range of infrastructure providing it meets the criteria to support the development of the area.

Examples of eligible projects:

  • Environmental improvements such as, landscaping, open space improvement
  • Public Art
  • Street furniture
  • Equipment for a community group. 

Horndean Parish Council currently has £40,289.00 available for projects.

The following proposals have been submitted:

  • To extend and replace the boardwalks situated at Hazleton Common (£3,972.51) and Dell Piece West (£6,659.45)
  • To plant trees within Catherington Lith and Jubilee Field (£2,000 approx)
  • To provide a DDA compliant toddler swings at Downs Park (£57,933 - £9,832).

Please do contact the Parish Office on 02392 597766 or on contact@horndeanpc-hants.gov.uk with any comments which you may wish to make regarding the above proposed projects, and additionally with any ideas about how this funding could be spent.

What is a Definitive Map?

Each highway authority keeps a Definitive Map and Statement of all public rights of way - the formal legal record of the existence of footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways open to all traffic. In total it offers more than 137,000 miles of public footpath, bridleway and byway providing a level of access admired throughout the world.

Please see the map at the link below with contact details of which authority to report issues to:
