News Updates From EHDC.


The COP26 East Hampshire event in Alton on Friday 8th October is being hosted by Cllr Rob Mocatta and Damian Hinds.

More information available via Damian's website and also EHDC's

This is a great opportunity for residents and businesses to find out what is happening locally to accelerate the move to net zero, and also to find out the steps they can take for themselves. Lord Deben will be attending us as the key note speaker, and there will also be a series of presentations, ahead of a business-focused session later in the afternoon. The exhibition that is running alongside the presentations will also provide information on the products and services that can help people take action.

You are encouraged to pre-register in advance for free entry tickets via Eventbrite and I do hope you may be able to join us during the event.

Change of date of December Planning Committee and Parish Council Meetings

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, the date of the December Planning Committee Meeting and Parish Council Meeting has been changed to Monday, 13th December.

The Planning Meeting will start earlier than usual (6.30 p.m.), because of the high number of planning applications received this month. The Parish Council Meeting will follow immediately after the Planning Meeting so may start slightly earlier than normal at 7.15 p.m.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Full details are given via the Accessibility Statement below left, but in brief every webpage now has an accessibility Button at the top right. This enables users to alter such things as text size and colour contrasts, to suit their circumstances.
