Yobs to Close Short Cut?

Antisocial behaviour by late night pedestrians using the unofficial short cut between Stubbs Drove and Willow Close and Aspen Close has brought local residents to the end of their tether.  They came to the Town Council last year asking for help in restoring tranquillity to this area of Hedge End.

The Council has been consulting people who live in the area, and some who use the cut, and representatives of both parties have come to meetings to make their case.  Discussions with the County Rights of Way Officer have led to the suggestion that the Town Council put a fence and gate on the land they own to the south of Stubbs Drove.  The gate would be open during the hours of daylight, but in the dark even law-abiding pedestrians going about their legitimate business would have to go the long way round. 

A report on the latest consultation will be presented to the Recreation and Amenities Committee on Wednesday 8th February. 

Other items on the agenda include:

Hedge End Junior Cricket Club's plans for the new season,

Green Flag Community Award for the Recreation Ground,

Whether dogs should be on lead only in our local parks,

Protecting Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation,

and The Village Centre Clock.
