Council Backs Plans To Transform Bournemouth’s Winter Gardens Car Park.
People In Fareham Give Welborne Their Backing
People in Fareham have given their backing to the idea of a new town in the area.
Fareham residents were asked about the development of Welborne in the Borough Council’s 2013 Residents’ Survey.
Nearly three-quarters of residents agreed that planning for a new community of thousands of homes at Welborne was the right approach to meeting Fareham’s future housing needs and to help stop piecemeal development taking place in the countryside that separates the different communities in the Borough.
There were some geographical differences in the results, with wards such as Warsash (88%) and Titchfield Common (89%) expressing particularly strong support for Welborne. There was also considerable support in wards close to the Welborne site, with 45% in Fareham East and 50% in Fareham North in favour of the development.
This year’s results also show that levels of resident satisfaction have steadily risen since the 2009 and 2011 surveys.
- 89% of residents think the Council provides value for money. 7% more than in 2009.
- 97% are happy with their local area, 2% more than in 2009.
- 91% of residents are happy with the way the Council runs things.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward said:
“The development of a new community at Welborne is critical to the future of Fareham. That’s why it’s reassuring to find out that the majority of our residents agree that the Council’s decision to plan for Welborne is the right approach to take.
"It’s also good to know that at a time when many of our residents are under financial pressure and tightening their belts, so many think the Council provides value for money and are happy with the services it provides.”
Police say 41 criminals, sending Class A drugs into the city, have been jailed in the last year and a half.
