Local people have their say

Eastleigh Borough Council has started an engagement process that will finish on 19 November with local people to help the Council gain a better understanding of what they value and feel is most important to them within their community and the new communities which will develop over the coming years.

Entitled, ‘Shaping your community’ the initiative is part of the local plan process and will involve a wide range of audiences from in and around the borough including residents, businesses, local groups, agencies, organisations and  local councils.       

Whilst the Council is continuing to collect all the evidence for its emerging plan, it is also encouraging views from local people about what’s important for the future of your community. These results will all be collated and considered alongside the wider plan.

Council Leader Keith House said, “We want to find out what local people think are important to them in their communities.  This is not just about housing, but about roads and traffic, schools and doctors, parks and open spaces, jobs and more. It’s important that local people get involved in helping to shape their community and we encourage them to give us their views.”

There will also be an opportunity to provide views on the details of the local plan during a formal consultation period in 2018.
