Town Planners Consider Climate Change
It’s encouraging to see the issue of climate change now being discussed at Town Council level.
Credit, in this case, to Cllr. Caroline Rackham who Chairs the Planning Committee of Totton & Eling Town Council.
The authority acts in a largely non political way.
It’s really important that the grass roots level of local government is thinking about how the town can reduce its’ carbon footprint.
Members of the public are welcome to attend and even ask questions, but you need to arrive in time for a prompt start at 19.15pm on Wednesday, 4th December.
For new visitors, the Council Chamber is located in the Civic Centre Building, Totton.
Just walk through the automatic doors and up the stairs to the first floor Council Chamber.
(There is also a lift available).

BRIDGE TO REPLACE CROSSING I am grateful to Councillor Dave Hills for flagging this up via the "Waterside Community Railway" Facebook Page.

REDUCTION IN COUNCILLOR NUMBERS LEADS TO STRANGE BOUNDARIES The Electoral Commission has published a report detailing recommendations following the decision to reduce the number of Councillors from 60 to 48 on New Forest District Council. This is a piece of work that I initiated some years ago. I always felt that there were simply more…
NEW COUNTRY PARK I am unashamedly sharing my vision for something positive that we could see happen here, if only there is sufficient political will to make it so. At this time, we all need something positive to focus on, so here goes…. I think we should create "Win Win" Country Park, located on coastal…
