Town Centre Community & Business Meeting

The Town Centre Community Meeting took place on 3rd September in St George’s Church.

Here are some key issues that came up, that may be of particular interest.

The Vine Medical Group are planning a new medical centre on land which has been gifted for this purpose by developers of the West of Waterlooville Development. This centre will replace all of the surgery buildings currently occupied by Vine Medical Group. There was concern as to patients travelling to this new centre, as there is no bus service and unlikely to be one.

A decision meeting on the revised plans for the Wellington Way development is expected October/November, at the time of writing a date has not been fixed. The planning committee requested provision of car parking spaces and plans for a multi-storey car park on the current ‘Iceland’ car park site have now been submitted.

The Aquino InterConnector line is a major national infrastructure involving the installation of an underground power line between the coast and Lovedean. It will cause massive local traffic chaos over a two year period. Councillors are investigating the possibility of revising the proposed route from main traffic roads to instead taking a route through the West of Waterlooville development to help minimise the disruption.

Local Councillor ‘drop-in’ surgeries are to be held on the second Saturday of each month, between 11am and 12noon at the Fox and Hounds Pub, Stakes Hill Road.

The next Waterlooville Town Centre Community and Business Meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th November, 7pm at St George’s Church. Amongst other things, it is expected that there will be information on the outcome of the Wellington Way planning application. It’s a useful opportunity for residents and businesses to keep up with what is going on locally.
