Keeping it low

Council Tax

EHDC is committ ed to having the capacity to reduce Counci l Tax to zero. We have made two consecutiv e cuts in Counci l Ta x - the only council in the co untr y to achieve this - backed up by this year’s freeze. To achieve this the council has set itself ambitious target s to generate in come and save money.

East Hampshire District Council has frozen its share of Council Tax for the forthcoming year, one of only a handful of councils around the country to do so. The freeze follows two consecutive cuts, bringing Council Tax down to 2010 levels. Band D properties will pay £131.11 a year for the services they receive from EHDC. These include bin collection, planning, food safety, pollution control, housing, managing elections and many, many more.

EHDC has been earning income through investing in high -qualit y commer cial properties and collecting re nt. Our teams sell th eir expertise to other councils or organisations to raise income. We work as effic iently as possib le and save costs wherever we can. For exam ple the cost of our managemen t team is shared w ith Havant Borough Counci l.

Where does my Council Tax go?

Although EHDC collects Council Tax from you, it only sets the portion it keeps for its own services. Other local authorities in the area - Hampshire County Council, the Police and Crime Commission, Hampshire Fire and Rescue and local town and parish councils - have increased their share of Council Tax this year, meaning your total bill will have gone up. But EHDC is doing its best to keep the Council Tax you pay low.

Under starter’s orders! Plans for £30m of investment into sport and leisure facilities in East Hampshire are under starter’s orders. A new centre is set to be built in Alton and in Whitehill & Bordon - and the Taro Leisure Centre in Petersfield is being refurbished. In March planning permission was approved for the two new centres which will be ready for action during 2019. The new facilities are being delivered by EHDC’s sports and leisure partner Everyone Active. They will give even more people across the area the opportunity to take part in sports and exercise making it easier for people to live healthy lifestyles.

What’s coming? Alton • A six-lane swimming pool deep enough to allow the GCSE programme work, where the current pool is not. It will have hi-tech touch-pad timers, starting blocks and seating for 150 spectators • A learner pool with an adjustable floor so it can be used safely by different age groups for different purposes • An air-conditioned group cycle studio, including hi-tech virtual classes where resistance programmes match the contours of the terrain on the screen • Two multi-use studios capable of hosting a range of group exercise activities with air conditioning, mirrored walls and ballet bars. One studio can also heat to 38°C, allowing it to be used for hot yoga • A six-court sports hall with sprung wooden floor and acoustic protection

Self-funding

• The centre will also feature a spa that includes four treatment rooms and recovery areas, including a sauna, steam room and hydro pool. Guests will also have access to heated lounge chairs and a monsoon shower

The new agreement with Everyone Active will mean that for the first time the centres will be self-funding and, over the life of the 20-year contract, will not cost the taxpayer a penny.

• A much larger 130-station gym, with its own dedicated changing area and locker facilities, reflecting the popularity of this kind of training

In fact, it will generate income to pay for other public services in the area and keep council tax low.

• Family-friendly pool-side changing rooms including more baby changing facilities and larger family cubicles • Crèche facilities

The transformation of the town is being led by a partnership which includes: East Hampshire District Council, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Hampshire County Council, Enterprise M3 LEP, Homes England, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, Barratt Homes and Radian.


Y H T L A E AH N W O T NEW Whitehill & Bordon has been named as one of 10 NHS England Healthy New Towns. This is a new way of designing towns to help people in Whitehill & Bordon live healthy, active and independent lives. State-of-the-art technology will be integrated into homes and workplaces. A new health hub will offer advice and treatment, and a new leisure centre will be built in the heart of the town. East Hampshire District Council has been working with its partners to rethink how health and care services can be delivered. Partners include the South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Hampshire County Council, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, Radian and local GP surgeries.

These pages show some of the ways Whitehill & Bordon will be a Healthy New Town

GETTING ABOUT We want to make it easier, safer and more enjoyable for people to walk and cycle around Whitehill & Bordon. We are working with urban designers to investigate how we can improve the experience of walking and cycling around town. In February we held a series of workshops with different resident groups and local schools. These workshops focussed on Chalet Hill and Budds Lane, which is a key route from the existing town into the new town. Residents walked the route and identified opportunities to enhance it. The next stage of the work will include creating and implementing projects along the route to encourage local people to get out and about.

HEALTHY NEW TOWN SURVEY In February and March we asked people living in Whitehill & Bordon how they felt about their physical and mental health. Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey - your feedback is really valuable and will help us to shape our programme over the next year.

Local Plan review What can residents do? What is the Local Plan?

So why do we need a new one?

The Local Plan sets out priorities and policies for development in relation to housing, business, infrastructure, health, community facilities and the environment. It sets out what the opportunities are for development in the area, and says what will and will not be permitted and where.

Local plans have always had a set lifespan before they are reviewed but a national requirement to review plans every five years came into force in 2018.

The Local Plan is the council’s key planning document and is referred to when making all planning decisions.

Haven’t we already got one? Yes, EHDC is currently using a Joint Local Plan with the South Downs National Park that was adopted in 2014. The new plan will only cover parts of the district outside the national park. The South Downs National Park Authority has produced a plan for its own area.

What if the council doesn’t have an up-to-date plan? Without an up-to-date Local Plan, councils can find it more difficult to control development in their area. For example, Government policies may have to be used instead.

Public discussions are being planned throughout 2018 on key parts of the Local Plan including infrastructure, housing, the environment and employment. A draft plan should be ready for consultation by early 2019. To be kept informed about future consultations please contact the planning policy team.

What will it mean for neighbourhood plans? Revising the Local Plan will mean that existing and developing neighbourhood plans may have to change to keep pace with the new plan and this could mean more work and more engagement with those local communities.

The future looks secure for Froxfield Stores in more ways than one.

Grant shelters medieval murals

Not only was EHDC instrumental in bringing a new Post Office back to the shop it also helped it install new security measures.

Priceless wall paintings in a medieval church were protected from ruin with help from a £1,000 grant from an EHDC councillor.

While the new Post Office will help secure the shop’s financial future Cllr Nick Drew’s £500 from his Councillor Community Grants budget will help keep customers safer.

The paintings on the north wall of St Hubert’s Church, in Idsworth, were being damaged by the rain due to faulty guttering.

Holybourne celebrates new goals

Cllr Malcolm Johnson’s grant went towards repairs to the guttering and helped protect the 14th Century murals, which feature the life of John the Baptist. The work marks the start of an ambitious set of repair and restoration projects which need to be carried out if the 11th Century building is to be preserved.

Holybourne’s young footballers will be emulating their World Cup heroes this summer after the village netted a couple of goals for its kickabout space.

A Friends’ Trust, formed in 2016, has arranged a varied programme of events for 2018 including concerts, poetry reading, an art exhibition and afternoon teas.

The two new goals have been installed on Holybourne’s playing field and are open for anyone to use. They have been paid for by a £1,000 grant from EHDC Cllr Glynis Watts to Alton Town Council.

2018

Record-breaking year for East Hampshire Sports Awards The very best of East Hampshire’s sporting talent was recognised at this year’s recordbreaking sports awards ceremony. Hundreds of local sports stars, coaches, volunteers and supporters packed out the Old Thorns Manor Hotel, in Liphook, at EHDC’s prestigious annual ceremony on Thursday 15 February. The evening, which celebrated athletes who are at the top of their game, was the most successful in the event’s seven-year history with more nominations this year than ever before. Star quality was provided by Olympic Silver medallist Roger Black, one of the south’s most recognised sporting celebrities, and special guest marathon man Ben Smith.  Ben ran 401 marathons in 401 days and he spoke inspirationally about the challenges and set-backs he overcame while completing his 10,506 miles, the equivalent of running from London to Sydney.

The audience was alternately enthralled and amused by Ben and Roger’s anecdotes, and both were inundated with requests for selfies as part of the council’s social media selfie competition. But the centre of attention was those nominated for the evening’s 17 awards. Fierce competitors, motivated coaches and loyal volunteers were all given their moment in the spotlight. The record-breaking number of entries meant that nominees were drawn from all corners of the district, from all age groups and from a diverse array of sports. Football, rugby, trampolining, golf, sailing, swimming, squash, tennis, walking netball and even a pub pool team, which won a national trophy, were represented. Alton and Petersfield led the field of winners with five each, while Four Marks, Whitehill & Bordon, Ropley, Horndean, Liphook and Bentworth also produced winners.

Get East Hants working East Hampshire District Council prides itself on being one of the most business-friendly councils in the country. The council works with other authorities and businesses to create a sustainable local economy with vibrant businesses and high quality jobs for local people. We do that by providing three key things: infrastructure, skills and business support.

Infrastructure

Skills

Business space provided

Apprentices supported

By making space available for new businesses to move into the district EHDC can create jobs and boost the economy.

One of the ways the council improves skills among local workers is by supporting apprentices.

Thanks to a partnership with the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) a new employment park is being completed on the former Ordnance Supply Unit in Liphook. The M3 LEP put £1.6m towards East Hampshire’s pilot projects while EHDC invested £2.5m. Work involves the construction of two office blocks, one two storey and the other three storey, as well as a three unit industrial building. New businesses are set to move on to the site this summer.

Employers can receive funding from EHDC to subsidise wages and contribute towards transport and training for apprentices they take on. More than £2m has been invested in the scheme, helping 55 apprentices.

Business support Website launched Business East Hants has recently launched a new website that provides the perfect platform for the district’s businesses to communicate with each other and receive business-related information from local and regional sources. East Hampshire businesses can claim a place in the business directory and receive regular e-newsletters on the latest hot topics.  You can also send in your own business news to share with others. Get in touch with us on 01730 234168. www.businesseasthants.org

Businesses of all sizes are eligible for the scheme. In particular, we encourage applications from small and medium sized businesses. The scheme is called the Get East Hants Working initiative and it is aimed at boosting local employment, job creation and business growth through apprenticeships.

Electric network Electric car drivers can get the boost they need at the latest rapid car charging points installed in East Hampshire. East Hampshire District Council promotes sustainable transport, including the switch to electric vehicles, and increasing the number of electric car chargers is a big part of that. The new points can charge all vehicle types in as little as 20 minutes. They have been installed as part of the GeniePoint Network, which is the fastest expanding rapid charging network across the UK.

As the network grows electric vehicle drivers will find chargers in convenient locations throughout the district and this will help more people to switch to electric.

Working for your welfare Welfare is not only about being free from disease or illness – it is also about living healthy lives mentally, physically and even socially. East Hampshire District Council is helping people live a full and active life by focusing on two priorities – healthy eating and reducing social isolation. By tackling these two issues across the district we can improve many people’s lives.

What we’re doing Services for older people

Healthy eating project

Isolation of elderly people

Authorities and organisations that provide services for older people will discuss how to help East Hampshire’s older residents.

We have been working with schools around Whitehill & Bordon to encourage children to live healthier lifestyles and eat healthier food. We are encouraging schools to champion healthy snacks and introduce lunch box guidance through their school council. We will also work with partners to offer healthy cookery programmes in the local community.

We are helping older people live independently, as active and supported members of the community. We recognise that many people live alone, cut off from their community, and this can have a big impact on their health.

Councils and voluntary organisations will find out what works well in East Hampshire, what works well elsewhere and the best ways to support older people.

Leading on welfare EHDC’s Leader Cllr Richard Millard has made welfare one of the council’s top priorities. He said: “As a district council we are in a unique position to help the most vulnerable people in our community.

“By focusing on healthy eating and social isolation we can provide vital support for the people who need it most.”


Loneliness service

gets a little help from its friends Studies show that loneliness can have as serious an impact on your health as smoking or obesity – so being socially active is as important to your health as being physically active. But many, particularly older people, find themselves isolated and cut off from their community. Age Concern Cowplain Befriending Service is there to help people in the Horndean area that need support and companionship. The service teams people up with their own ‘befriender’ who visits weekly for six to eight weeks and attends local groups or societies with them to build confidence and help them back into the community.

Being socially isolated and stuck at home can have a serious impact on wellbeing. Isolated people are more likely to visit their doctor or other local health care services because they want someone to talk to. This becomes an extra burden on the NHS. The Befriending Service is wholly reliant on grants and costs about £12,000 a year to run. More money is always needed to keep the scheme going as are more volunteer befrienders. EHDC Chairman, Cllr Lynn Evans, who helped set up the service says it needs support from local people if it is to keep going.

“It is a wonderful service that has helped so many people over the years, but it is reliant on grant funding and volunteers and desperately needs more help.” To find out more about the Befriending Service and how you can benefit from it or support it contact Age Concern Cowplain manager Liz Wood: manager@ageconcerncowplain.org.uk

Caring for carers Cllr Adam Carew, EHDC Welfare and Wellbeing Champion, said: “As well as focusing on isolation and healthy eating, we are also looking at the problems faced by older carers. “Looking after my 92-year-old mother I know how difficult it can be as a carer dealing with everything from health matters and hospital visits to legal and financial issues. Carers in their seventies facing these issues need our support.”
