Denmead Parish Council
The next development proposal to affect much of our local area is likely to be an infrastructure project led by AQUIND limited.
Denmead Parish Council have invited AQUIND to a meeting of The Planning Committee on Wednesday 6th March 2019 at 7.30pm in Ashling Pavilion, in order that residents have the opportunity to ask questions. All residents are welcome to attend. Follow the link HERE to see the advertised poster.
The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids, both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power. It is estimated the Interconnector could become operational by 2022.
If residents have received correspondence directly from AQUIND, such as the Land Interest Questionnaire, or if they have any concerns in relation to this 'Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project' (NSIP) affecting Denmead, they have been advised by AQUIND to contact them directly. WSP's Land Referencing Team can be contacted via tel: 020 3116 9389 or by emailing email@example.com or accessing information on their website at https://aquindconsultation.co.uk/
WINTER WALK 6 - Sat. 23rd Feb - 10am - Bat & Ball
About 15 minutes before the scheduled starting time of the walk from West Meon just 7 walkers had appeared, however within a very short time an additional 30 turned up, several of whom had got lost en route to the public car park in the village. Despite the threat of rain a bracing two hour walk finished with 17 enjoying lunch at the Thomas Lord, their arrival at the pub coinciding with the threatened downpour. Click HERE for more details.
The February walk brings us closer to home and is from the Bat & Ball. As usual at this venue walkers are asked, where possible, to share transport and park at the far end of the car park furthest away from the pub. For those wishing to stay for lunch we will have a menu available so food can be pre-ordered.
Just two walks remain of the current season which are as follows:
March 30th - The George, Finchdean
May 4th - The Vine, Hambledon.
A reminder that the weekly evening walks start on Tuesday 14th May and run until 20th August - more details to follow. Any queries about the remaining winter walks to LYDIA MERRIMAN, Deputy Clerk, at DPC offices on Tel: 023 9224 7947.
