Seats and benches

There are over 600 seats and benches across the Borough which are maintained by the Streetscene team.

The Council operates a scheme for people or organisations to donate a new seat or adopt an existing one to commemorate a loved one.  If you are unsure about any land, please contact our parks team on 01329 236100 or

Donating a seat

We will buy, install and maintain a seat on your behalf. It will have an engraved plaque, inscribed with words of your choice. The current cost of this is £1,715.00.

Adopting a seat

We will refurbish and maintain an existing seat on your behalf. It will have an engraved plaque, inscribed with words of your choice. The current cost of this option is £450.


Seats under this scheme can only be donated or adopted on land owned by Fareham Borough Council. If you are unsure whether the land in question please contact the parks team on the details below, who will be happy to assist.

Requests for the donation of seats along the promenade at Hill Head are very popular and space is now very limited. If at all possible, please try to request locations other than this to ensure that your application is successful.

How to apply

Once you have decided that you wish to proceed with the adoption or donation of a seat, it is best to either call or email the Council to see that what you require is actually possible prior to you submitting an application form and payment.

Please fill out the Seat and Bench Donation form PDF (98 KB) and return it with your payment to Fareham Borough Council.

Should you wish to report a problem with a seat or would like to ask about a seat adoption, or would like more information, please contact us on 01329 236100 or
