** Update on Woodpecker Walk Bench **

Eighteen months ago, we were asked by the residents of Cirrus Gardens to consider whether anything could be done to minimise the noise and disturbance caused by people using the bench on Woodpecker Walk – especially late at night.

With the recent hot weather, these problems have started to recur, so we have removed the bench. We are now working hard to find a couple of alternative locations in and around the area to put in some smaller ‘perch style’ benches (made from recycled Hamble tree trunks) that will allow people to stop and pause but which are unlikely to attract large groups of people. We also intend to install a new bench with higher visibility in the future.

We hope that the community can understand that the noise and disturbance was causing a lot of upset for local residents, but that the move to ‘perch style’ benches (plus the new, more visible bench) is a good compromise.

The perch style benches should be in place within the next week or so – please comment below with any suggestions for locations for these.

Such a shame that a few people spoil it for the majority, I was going to suggest more benches as this lovely area of public open space appears to be underutilised in the daytime apart from dog walkers. I am sure many residents would enjoy sitting there for a while rather than just passing through. I am not sure how good the perch benches will be.....sympathise with the near neighbours but surely there is another solution, perhaps regular local policing at relevant times...

Thank-you, HPC for such a pragmatic response. It sounds like a good compromise and worth a try.

I love Woodpecker walk, it's lovely, quiet and shady in the morning, just right for walking my dog who's very nervous. We often sit on the bench as it gives him time to sit and watch the world go by in a peaceful area. Look forward to seeing the new benches 😊👍

There was a lovely bench on the Westfield common cliffs, under the trees close to the slipway. It disappeared during lockdown, it was a super location for a bench.

Is there a Hamble Youth Club? Or any other evening programs for 13-18 year olds in the area?

** The Future of Hamble Airfield - Update **

We remain in regular contact with Hampshire County Council (HCC) regarding the planning application submitted by Cemex.

As you may recall from previous updates, HCC has asked Cemex to provide additional information to support their application to extract gravel from the former Hamble Airfield site (Regulation 25).

We have asked for a timetable for when the information is likely to be available and hope to have that soon.

Once the information is available there will be another period of consultation to ensure the community can update their comments based on the new evidence.

From our perspective, we believe the issues of transport and congestion are central to the application. We hope that Hampshire Highways will reply once Cemex has provided the additional information requested by HCC.

For the benefit of everyone in the village, could I ask what is the parish council’s policy, goal or end game regarding this cemex app - is it to stop, delay, or seek an alternative proposal for the Airfield

Just a virtue signalling process towards an inevitable allowance for the bid to go ahead.

Let’s Work Together to Reduce Crime & Make Hamble Safe

What is the problem?

• We are aware that there are heightened concerns around the village about crime and safety, specifically against the backdrop of an increase in anti-social behaviour

Why is this an issue now?

• Holidays and good weather - more people are at home due to holidays and enjoying the good weather outdoors which increases awareness of ASB
• School holidays - young people do not have college/school, and are bored looking for things to do
• Thieves look for easy opportunities - such as unlocked bikes, open windows or poorly lit outbuildings and gardens
• Hot weather - tempers are more easily frayed in the very hot weather

What can I do to reduce my risk?

• Be sure to shut doors, windows, garages/sheds and lock your side gate when you're out
• Lock up your valuables (tools, bikes, watercraft, etc)
• Mark your property with a DNA marker pen to help identify your belongings
• Help young people to organise activities, day trips, recreational fun
• Keep hedges/bushes cut back so there is less opportunity for thieves to hide
• Install motion sensor security lights outside your home
• Consider a smart home security camera and doorbell
• Explore smart technology and timers to turn on lights automatically when you're away
• Redirect your post or ask neighbours to take in your mail when you're on holiday to avoid post piling up
• Register your bike with bikeregister.com
• Find creative ways to stay cool

What should I do if I witness a crime or anti-social behaviour?

• Is the incident happening now? Call 999
• Otherwise – report online at bit.ly/3zJeP2g

What response should I expect from the Police?

• Police resources are allocated based on the overall threat, harm, and risk to the local community, whilst also considering active opportunities. Officers may not be deployed to every incident, but this does not mean it isn’t being investigated at a local level
• Local officers will always take every available opportunity to review all reasonable lines of enquiry available when incidents and crimes are reported to us. The officers review all recorded crimes as part of their daily routine

But police told me they weren't actively investigating a robbery from my partners van in hamble. They aren't interested in thefts unfortunately because even though its a crime there clearly isn't enough resources to follow up on anything. I told them I had cctv and they wouldn't even come to view that neither and people wonder why other people get annoyed with our police.
