Council’s road development bid

First published in News

THE weight of England’s biggest county authority has been thrown behind delivering a key part of a multi-million pound plans for a new business hub.

Hampshire County Council has announced it will be leading the development of a spine road to a new “innovation centre” at Daedalus airfield – now a designated Enterprise Zone. It is hoped better access will help the overall bid to spark a wave of advanced manufacturing, with a focus on the engineering, aerospace, aviation and marine industries.

If approved, it will provide new office space and workshop facilities geared up for those specific sectors.

The proposed development is part of large-scale investment at Daedalus, which includes improvements to the runway and new hangar space.

This is great news traveling between the hangers will be a breeze, however after leaving the site and its marvelous new roads you join the misery brought about by HCC & FBC's cllr Woodworm and GBC's Cllr Crook's incessant housing developments and traffic congestion.
Only a complete numpty would put an "innovation centre" 4-miles down a single carriageway called Newgate Lane.
Ohh but I forgot that's another board that Woodworm takes a shilling from.

England's biggest county authority?? Who made that up? This smacks of being a Sean Woodward press release because Hampshire comes below Kent and Essex in that particular listing, so maybe England's biggest county authority along the south coast. LOL

Farehamscarem has a right to be worried about Woodward's woodworming into the county's structure. As well as bullying himself to the borough council leadership, he's bribed his way onto the county executive, is chair of PUSH and a director of SLEP. How anyone can expect him to be impartial when it comes to making decisions is anyone;s guess. So many hats. Maybe he has the time to wear them now that his business is failing and being bought out by Quindell. Oh and he's on their "team" too....
