Current Topics

Police

Hampshire Constabulary now have web pages giving news about police topics relevant to the Fleet area, including the parish of Crookham Village. The parish lies across three beat areas which roughly align with ward boundaries.

The Hampshire Police web page for Fleet and Church Crookham is HERE and that for the rural part of the parish is HERE.

The Hart Community Safety web site went live in December 2008 HERE.

ZCC signThe Zebon Copse Centre
7 September 2009: Because Velmead Community Centre is often mistaken for facilities associated with the area around Velmead School in Fleet, the facility has been renamed The Zebon Copse Centre (ZCC for short) to coincide with its re-opening after major refurbishment.
The refurbished hall is now fully open for business again.

June 2010
Crookham Village Parish Council has now taken over Zebon Copse Centre buildings and land from Hart District Council.
See HERE for details of the facilities and for booking details.

New Play Boulder at Velmead May 2009
Youngsters enjoying the new play boulderIn collaboration with HDC and the Big Lottery Fund, the Parish Council is installing a 3m play boulder opposite the swings on the bigger play area at Velmead on Zebon Copse.

The foundations were prepared on 1 May 2009 and the boulder itself is due to be installed on Wednesday 6 May 2009.

14 May 2009: The new pair of play boulders are now in use within an extension to the senior play area and proving very popular with adventurous youngsters.

Grit Bins for Zebon Copse February 2010
Following experience of untreated roads during the recent snows, CVPC has decided to purchase 4 additional salt/grit bins for Zebon Copse - 2 for Brandon Road, one for Jessett Drive and one for the Pawmers Mead area of Browning Road. These will be installed and subsequently filled by HCC.

8 February 2010
First 2 bins for Danvers Drive and Jessett drive to be installed by HCC Highways this week. Other two on order by CVPC.

12 February 2010
All four grit bins now in place and filled. Job complete.

SHLAA - CV Parish Housing Sites
July 2009: Hart Council's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment has proposed a number of sites in and around the parish for inclusion in the draft Local Development Framework.
See HERE for an overview map of proposed sites around CV Parish, HERE for the June 2009 CVPC Newsletter and HERE for full details from HDC.
The CVPC response of 6 July 2009 is HERE.

March 2010
The SHLAA report is now available on line HERE and includes all the sites around the parish which generated so much local interest when first published in draft.

June 2010
Housing targets are currently under review following changes to Goverment guidance. The SHLAA remains a source document, but it will now be judged in a new light.

April 2011
A new edition of the SHLAA has been published showing even more encirclement of the Parish.
The full SHLAA documents are available on line HERE.  That page also has an option near the bottom for submitting comments.
Hart Planning Policy can be accessed HERE.

Review of Potential Sites for Rural Exception Housing April 2009
HDC consulted local residents and established that there was a case for a further 20 affordable dwellings under the Rural Exception Scheme (as Knight Close) in Crookham Village with occupancy restricted to those with local connections.

Note that this project is on hold until the future of nearby SHLAA sites has been clarified.

Leaf Blowing December 2012
Watery Lane track cleared of leavesAs in recent years, CVPC has employed a local contractor to blow leaves from main paths in Zebon Copse and along the towpath from Malthouse Bridge to Crookham Wharf. Not only does this make the paths safer to walk during the winter, but it reduces the build up of leaf mould which, over time, would cover all-weather paths in mud. The aim is to avoid a repeat of problems such as those experienced with the Watery Lane track leading up to the Swing Bridge from the Zebon side which required the laying of a complete new surface a few years back.

Footpath 2/14 Boardwalk Completed
Hillyburrow hilltop

October 2008: A new boardwalk is now in place across the boggy crossing on FP2 at its intersection with FP14 on the south side of Hillyburrow. Funding by CVPC with support from Hampshire County Council.
The stream has also been dug out on the upstream side in a bid to reduce the incidence of flooding. However, since this area acts as a water meadow and reduces the risk of flooding downstream, this area will still be liable to flood in the wettest weather.

Hillyburrow Trees Protected
Hillyburrow hilltop
August 2008: a new fence has been erected by CVPC to protect the landmark copse of trees at the top of Hillyburrow against further damage from horses.

Post Office Pay Phone to go ?Phone box November 2008
June 2008: BT is proposing to remove the pay phone from outside the Post Office in Crookham Village.

September 2008: CVPC decided that it will not adopt or sponsor the phone box. See para 157/08 in these minutes.

December 2008: After representations from villagers at the CVPC meeting on 1 December, the Council reconsidered its decision to allow the Post Office telephone box to be removed and resolved to request that BT leave the box in place without a working telephone inside. A volunteer offered to help with the subsequent upkeep. Since the deadline has passed, it is not yet clear whether BT will agree.

5 January 2009: BT has agreed to sell the box (minus the phone) to the Parish Council. Handover date has yet to be defined. CVPC will be looking for voluntary help from villagers (especially those who offered to help at the December parish meeting) to keep the box and its surround in good order.

17 October 2009: Following purchase by CVPC, a group of volunteers is refurbishing the box as a village landmark. See HERE for more details.

29 November 2009:
Phone box October 2009The Parish Council and Crookham Village Association congratulate volunteers on winning a £100 prize from British Telecom for their hard work in restoring the village Telephone Kiosk.
The many walkers, ramblers and cyclists who have passed the renovated Kiosk have commented on the need to retain this iconic village symbol. We can now proudly show our bright shiny red telephone kiosk as an example of community spirit, which we feel certain will be the envy of neighbouring villages.
As a Village feature, CVPC welcomes suggestions for items to display inside. We have already considered the possibility of floral arrangements, art work by local schools and, during the festive season, a small solar-powered Christmas Tree. Please contact the CVPC with any other suggestions
A big THANK YOU to all who participated in the renovation.

Traffic
Following representations by concerned residents at the 2008 APM, CVPC is investigating ways in which traffic issues on village roads might be addressed more effectively. Watch this space for progress reports in due course.

1 September 2008
A draft scheme to address traffic issues along Crondall Road has been prepared at CVPC request by HCC and will be reviewed at the resumed Parish Council meeting on 15 September.

15 September 2008
A draft scheme for traffic calming measures along Crondall Road and alterations to the speed limits at the southern end was presented to the Parish Council with residents of Crondall Road in attendance. These plans and residents' views will be be discussed at the CVPC meeting on 6 October.

6 October 2008
To give a wider spectrum of parishioners the opportunity to contribute their views, consideration by CVPC of draft plans for addressing traffic issues along Crondall Road has been deferred until after a wider consultation via the next issue of the Parish Newsletter due out shortly.

9 November 2008
The DRAFT traffic management scheme for Crondall Road proposed by HDC/HCC is HERE.
Comments welcome to the clerk.

21 December 2008
As described in the December 2008 Newsletter, there will be a public meeting to discuss traffic issues in the parish in the WI Hall, The Street, at 8pm on Monday 19 January 2009.

19 January 2009
33 parishioners attended a meeting in public on 19 January and presented their views on traffic to the Parish Council. Notes of that meeting are HERE.
CVPC will be considering what detailed proposals to put to HCC Highways at their regular parish council meeting on 2 February 2009 in the WI Hall. Interested parishioners are very welcome to attend.

9 February 2009
At their delayed monthly meeting on 9 February, CVPC decided to seek implementation of most of the proposals from Hampshire County Council with the addition of a 40mph segment southwards from Zephon Common Lane to Two Ponds. Councillors will also discuss other proposals from residents with HCC engineers.
CVPC also decided to purchase a Speed Indicator Device that can be deployed around the parish to flash warnings at motorists depending on their speed and to record actual speeds and numbers of vehicles to assist in putting forward a case for further action if current measures prove inadequate.

CVPC Traffic Incident Reporting
To assist in making the case for highway improvements in the Parish, parishioners who are concerned by particular traffic incidents are invited to report details to CVPC using a standardised form in WORD format for those who wish to fill it in on the computer, or as PDF for those who wish to handwrite and post. Save a copy on your computer for future use. There is room for three reports per form, or you can send in one form per incident if you wish.

If the incident is significant, you should also report it to the police on 999 (immediate action required) or 101 (for less urgent events),

Completed forms can be sent by post to the Clerk (address below), or as an email attachment to traffic@crookhamvillage-pc.org.uk.

Speedwatch
The Speedwatch Scheme supports teams of local volunteers recording speeding traffic who pass results to the police for follow-up action. Details HERE (2mb PDF). If a team of parishioners wishes to investigate this scheme further, please contact traffic@crookhamvillage-pc.org.uk.

Flooding
If you are affected by flooding at your property, contact Thames water on 0845 9200 800 so that they are fully aware of all the problems. A report by ZCRA about the storms of 20 July 2007 is HERE.
Responsibility for flooding is very fragmented. Details about who does what are HERE.

Planning

Appeals against Householder refusals - rules change 6 April 2009.
Appeals must now be lodged within 12 weeks of the refusal decision rather than the previous limit of 6 months. Furthermore, there will no longer be an opportunity to make further comments on these appeal applications - only the original comments will be taken into account by the Inspector.
New householder applications to Hart from 6 April will be allocated the suffix /HOU rather than /FUL to indicate that the above change applies.
Note that this does not affect non-Householder appeals or appeals against imposed conditions.

New Planning Regulations came into force on 1 October 2008
and allow much more freedom for adding extensions etc to domestic properties without needing planning permission. At the same time, new restrictions have been introduced for hard standings in front gardens.
Details on line at the Planning Portal, including an interactive 3D guide.
Hart Council, via their planning help desk on 01252-774419, can provide advice on whether proposals require planning permission.
Article 4 restrictions still apply to listed buildings and within conservation areas.
Building Regulations still apply and must be complied with even if planning permission is not required.

Hart Council issues weekly lists of new planning applications, which can be viewed on line via Public Access HERE.

Full details of current planning applications in Hart can be examined at the Offices of Hart District Council, and are available on line HERE.

If you wish to query a possible breach of planning control, you can do so through the Enforcement section of Hart District Council. Details are HERE.

Significant planning applications affecting the Parish are considered by the CVPC Planning Committee at meetings in public at which there is an opportunity for parishioners to put their views before the application is considered by the committee. See parish notice boards and this web site for notices.

Note that the Parish Council is not empowered to determine planning applications, but their comments are taken into account when Hart Council, the local Planning Authority, makes its decision on applications.

Past monthly reports of the CVPC Planning Committee are HERE.
