I have been to Dorset to question health bosses over the proposed Clinical Services Review. The changes are likely to include new Hub hospitals, the closure of some existing hospitals, changes to how health and social care is delivered and where services and Consultants are located. It will have an impact on some Hampshire residents but might also be a pointer to how things are done in our County later on.


HCC is proposing to form a combined authority, with others, in order to try and adopt powers from central government. This could include decisions about investment in local transport infrastructure projects,


Good progress on this. Thanks to the District Councillors for their support in accessing extra funding needed to complete the job. The specialist work to ensure safe exits and entrances will be going out to tender shortly.


I have been told the Barker Mill Estates are considering an alternative use for Cork Farm, (other than the Anaerobic Plant), but they won’t tell anyone what it is !


I have recently been able to support Marchwood Scouts & Guides and the Mulberry Pre-School with grant aid.


I have recently attended Southampton Football Training Facilities, Marchwood Yacht Club and Marchwood Annual Fete.


I am trying to put right an unfairness to tenants who have been penalised by the change of ownership from HCC to a private company, meaning that they don’t now qualify for the same level of housing benefit.


HCC’s CE, Andrew Smith is retiring and is due to be replaced.
