A consultation about the options for the regeneration of Locks Heath District Centre will run from Monday 15 October until Monday 12 November. On 1 October, Fareham Borough Council’s Executive agreed that a public consultation exercise on the possible options for development should take place. The Council want to:
• Improve the vitality of the existing District Centre and ensure that it continues to thrive.
• Make the centre more attractive to people who want to shop for food.
• Explore the potential for the location of a new swimming pool and leisure facility and co-located community and youth facilities at the District Centre.
Councillor Keith Evans, Executive Member for Strategic Planning and Environment, said: "This upcoming consultation will be an excellent opportunity for people to have their say about how we can ensure a thriving district centre in Locks Heath for years to come."
Residents and local businesses will be able to look at and comment on the options at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultation from Monday 15 October. There will also be the following public exhibitions where people can talk to Council Officers about the options:
• Thursday 25 Oct: Locks Heath Community Centre 1:30pm-6pm
• Friday 26 Oct: Locks Heath Community Centre 1:30pm-7:30pm
The deadline for consultation responses will be Monday 12 November. The results of the consultation will go before the Council's Executive in January.
