Residents urged to attend open day on A325 consultation
WHITEHILL and Bordon residents are being urged to attend consultations on a main road that divides the town.
Results from the consultation hosted by Hampshire County Council and the Whitehill and Bordon Eco-town team will be a blueprint for improving the A325 as it passes through the town.
The proposals focus on traffic management and one of the main aims is redesigning the A325 so drivers will be more likely to use a proposed inner relief road.
It is planned that an inner relief road will reduce A325 traffic creating opportunities to make it more attractive and integrating the new Eco town development with the existing community.
Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council Councillor Mel Kendal said: “Reducing traffic on the A325 once an inner relief road has been built, is integral to the overall Eco town project. We want to develop proposals that will provide solutions and have the broad support of local people and businesses and it is therefore important that we hear their views.”
East Hampshire District Council Councillor Glynis Watts said: “Improving the A325 will help to make the town a better place to live and work. The consultations will show ideas for how this might be achieved, and input is needed from the local community.
“Visitors to the consultation events will be asked to provide feedback via a questionnaire, and I urge everyone to come and have their say.”
The open days are in the Forest Community Centre from 1pm-8pm on Friday, March 22, and 10am-1.30pm on Saturday, March 23. The proposals are also online at www.whitehillbordon.com
