Councillor's Surgery - November 2015

Sylke went to the local Wednesday surgery. Dominic Hiscock, one of our ward councillors, was there to speak to her.

The planning application for the 13 affordable dwellings to be built along Hillier Way is now available on the Winchester City Council website. You can find all of the details by searching for case number 15/02321/FUL on:

There are 46 documents associated with this application that show details for the houses planned. According to the notes in the Weekly List from 25/10/2015 (PDF) comments can be made until 24 November. The decision is due on 20 January 2016.

As nobody has shown any interest for the Neigbourhood Watch group and Speedwatch project volunteering opportunities, here is a repeat from last month:
"Volunteers are being sought for the Speedwatch project and a co-ordinator for a new Neighbourhood Watch group on the north eastern side of Worthy Road (see existing local groups and info). If you should be interested in helping out with any of these projects, please contact Dominic (contact details on the Council website)."

Please note if you have anything you would like to talk about, the next councillor's surgery is tomorrow! Please see our events list for future councillor's surgery locations, dates and times!
