Community Engagements

Council has appointed consultants Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands

Recognising the importance of ensuring the Council is able to provide new facilities that meet the needs of the local community, the Council has appointed consultants Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands to meet with group and community leaders to understand their views and use them to inform and develop plans for the building in a bit more detail. 

These plans will form a major part of a public exhibition giving the whole community an opportunity to comment on them and ensure that everyone's needs have been considered.

November 2023

The Council invited residents to vote for their favourite of three names 

  1. Henry Cort Open Space – in recognition of the geographic area adjacent to the school
  2. Fareham Park – to reflect the new ward name of the area which comes into effect for next year's local elections (currently this is Fareham North- West)
  3. Hillson Park – to reflect the location

January 2024 

Fareham Park 

We are delighted to announce that that the new name for the programme to transform the Fareham North West community and leisure facilities adjacent to Henry Cort Drive will be 'Fareham Park'.

Fareham Park was the clear winner with 2,486, out of the total 2,594 votes, and the name Fareham Park was chosen by nearly 96% of the voters. This name reflects the new ward name of the area which comes into effect for this year's local elections in May (currently this is Fareham North West).

A collaborative approach 

Alongside Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, we have worked to support local groups and organisation to ensure they have capacity to engage in the consultations.

Interactive workshops and online engagement exercises have supported a collaborative exchange of insights. 




Shaping the vision 

The community's feedback has identified the aspiration, opportunities, and key considerations. This will all help to inform the Fareham Park vision and brief. 

The workshops have highlighted the qualities that the new Community Centre could incorporate. We asked people which are most important to them. 




The outcomes of this engagement has helped inform the development of the vision for the new Fareham Park Community Centre and ensure it meets the needs of the local community. This is what you've told us so far: 



March 2024 

The Council invited residents to have their say on the project at an Exhibition and Community Action Team (CAT) Meeting. This provided an opportunity for the local community to help the Coucil further develop the project and ensure that everyone's needs have been considered.
