Consultation on draft Byelaws for Braishfield Recreation Ground

The Council is considering adopting byelaws for the Recreation Ground. These would enable the Council to regulate various unacceptable activities and take legal action, where appropriate, in the interests of the community.

We are particularly interested to know whether these byelaws, if adopted, would affect the way you use the Recreation Ground. Please send any comments to us:

Hampshire County Council is rolling out superfast broadband

Hampshire County Council is rolling out superfast broadband across the region.

It enables people to get internet speeds of 24Megabits per second or more – making streaming TV, working from home, online banking and shopping, and gaming a lot easier – to name just some of the benefits. 

Currently it’s available to 95% of the region, and that number is on target to reach 97.4% by the end of 2019. However, many people don’t know whether they can get superfast broadband or not, or believe it is more expensive than their current package – which is not always the case.

Hampshire County Council’s role is to provide the infrastructure to enable as many people as possible to access superfast broadband (not to sell the service). We have a postcode checker that will tell you if its available where you live, and what to do next if you want to find the right package for you. You can also register with us to be told when superfast broadband is coming to your area.

Use our postcode checker to find out if you can get superfast broadband now:

Hampshire County Council’s news-release on Snow and Ice

Keeping Hampshire moving through snow and ice

Since the start of 2019 the County Council’s winter fleet has spread more than 5,000 tonnes of salt to treat more than 40,000 miles of road, almost as far as driving twice around the Earth!

Hampshire Highways teams are on 24-hour standby, seven days a week, from 1 October right through until the end of April, to deal with winter conditions and ensure that Hampshire keeps moving, whatever the weather.The teams use detailed Hampshire-specific weather forecasts in combination with real time information from electronic roadside weather stations to make decisions about the best time to salt the roads, where to salt and how much salt to use. Forecast road surface and air temperatures, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and ice formation are all important factors in putting the winter fleet to work, which can sometimes be a round-the-clock operation.

Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

With the cost of dealing with Hampshire’s household waste now regularly topping the £100 million a year mark, Hampshire County Council is offering grants of up to £5,000 to help kick start or expand projects, products and services which prevent waste at home.

Grants will be awarded to projects that reduce or prevent ‘household waste’ – this is different to recycling as it involves taking action before a product or material becomes waste. Grant applications open on March 1, and interested groups are encouraged to discuss potential projects with the County Council’s team prior to applying. Please contact the team via email: to arrange an informal discussion.
