Community have their say at latest Question Time session
More than 40 residents attended a community question and answer session held by the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration company last week.
The Question Time evening gave attendees the opportunity to ask questions about the regeneration project and anything else they have queries about; whilst they received updates about the ongoing project works.
Updates were provided by housebuilder Zero C, County Highways, Hampshire Constabulary and The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company.
Key project updates from The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company included the near completion of the Bordon and Oakhanger Sports Centre, a start date of early 2019 for the town centre, an opening date of Autumn 2019 for Mill Chase Academy School, and the progress made to the facilities adjoining Hogmoor Inclosure.
Specialist sustainable housebuilder, Zero C, provided attendees with details of their housing plans for Woolmer Copse, a mix of 108 three, four and five-bedroom smart-homes.
A police community support officer (PCSO) detailed the formation of a neighbourhood policing priority plan, based on the feedback of residents on a locally circulated online survey.
Other updates included plans to erect 54-metre masts to boost 3G and 4G phone service around the wider Prince Philip Park area, and the finalisations of the southern section of the relief road by Skanska.
Natalie Belasco, marketing manager, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration company, said:
“The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration company take the voice of the community seriously and we hold these Question Time evenings not only to provide updates on our project work, but also to give the local community the opportunity to voice their thoughts and air questions. June’s Question Time was well attended and allowed for effective communication between our residents and project stakeholders.”
