Action Required

There will be a full Council meeting on Wednesday 30th January 2019 at 5:30pm. At this meeting there is a crucial vote on the Draft Local Plan. Councillors will decide which sites should be taken forward. Meeting Agenda

Hurstwood Room
Public Service Plaza
Civic Centre Road, Havant, Hampshire PO9 2AX

Please attend the meeting if you can. It is recommended to arrive shortly after 5:00pm as the Hurstwood Room is not expected to accommodate all visitors. If the Hurstwood Room reaches capacity it will still be possible to view the meeting on the screens in the Public Service Plaza.

“Attending this meeting will send a strong signal to Havant Borough Councillors of resident’s concerns about this development.”
Councillor Richard Kennett, Emsworth Ward

We would also encourage people to email their local ward councillor. Maybe, just raise your major concern. This is all about letting councillors know that residents are against this development.

“Councillors will be voting on the ‘Pre-submission Havant Borough Local Plan to 2036’ on Wednesday 30 January. If it is your wish that the land to the North of Long Copse Lane is removed from this plan it is important that councillors know your concerns. I would strongly advise emailing your local ward councillor with your objections and copy this email to all other council members.”
Councillor Richard Kennett, Emsworth Ward

If you have any difficulties with the email lists then please just email your ward councillor.

We are distributing leaflets to Emsworth and Westbourne residents. We have a number of volunteers but could still do with a little more help, particularly if you are able to deliver leaflets in Westbourne. If you can help please contact Mick Metcalf.

We’re lighting up Long Copse Lane!

As the expected application period draws closer, we’re planning to show everyone how much we all Love Long Copse Lane by planting thousands of daffodils and other bulbs along the verges to create a fantastic spectacle in spring time.

Help us plant the bulbs

On Saturday 3rd November, 10am – 1pm we’re all meeting to plants the bulbs and we need all the help we can get! Please come along and help. Find us on Facebook and tell us you’re coming to the event if you can.

Please also tell your friends and family and spread the word!

Bring a spade/tools and gloves if you can.

Donate for daffodils

We’re also looking for donations to buy even more daffodils – we want it to be a huge spectacle so that media and local press cover it, highlighting the plight of the Save Long Copse Lane campaign.

  • £27 buys 500 daffodils
  • £20 buys 300 daffodils
  • £10 buys 100 daffodils

Donate here, entering the amount you wish to donate in Paypal:

Donate to buy daffodils

So, help us to Light Up Long Copse Lane!

Thank you all in advance, we really appreciate your continued support!

PLEASE attend the meeting on 23rd May

We cannot emphasise how important it is that people attend the 3rd consultation meeting this Wednesday. We need to show that our concerns have not gone away and that we still oppose the development – the more people there to show their objection the better!

We see the meeting as another opportunity to understand the proposed development details in terms of transport and infrastructure, rather than a way to register your areas of objection which should be saved for your office objection when the application is underway.

With this in mind, please do share with us any objections that you have and we will be able to support you in placing your objection when the time comes.

We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 23rd May from 17.30 until 20.00 at the Emsworth Community Centre.
