The Village Gateway Licence was submitted in early June following consultation with landowners. A meeting with Highways took place in July to review the proposed gateways sites, resulting in some amendments to final locations, these have been taken on board and are in progress.
Following the installation of the Stockbridge gateways an additional consultation on gate style concluded that the slatted design which was originally proposed was preferred by a majority.
On 1st June a group of volunteers met at the pond planting aquatic plants, adding fish and constructing a filter bed as part of the ongoing project to naturalise the village pond and improve water quality. Generous donations of materials from residents together with a grant of £500 from Winchester City Council helped finance this work.
TREES AND VERGES
Tree work has been completed at both the burial ground and the cricket ground. New wooden posts have been placed outside the burial ground to protect the verge.
VILLAGE DESIGN STATEMENT
The Village Design Group is working to produce a Village Design Statement to supersede the current version which dates from 2001. The draft document is nearing completion and a village consultation event will be arranged after the summer holiday period. If in the meantime you have any questions, please contact Carole.
