This Community Web Site is designed both for the residents of New Milton and for the thousands of visitors who come to New Milton, Barton on Sea and Ashley and Bashley - as well as the surrounding New Forest area. New Milton is a vibrant and lively town located between the rolling hills of The New Forest and the Sea, west of the Solent. Bournemouth is some 10 miles west of New Milton and Southampton some 20 miles to the east.  The area is popular with walkers, adjacent as it is, to the 145 square miles of The New Forest and with the Cliffs and Beachside walks at Barton on Sea.

  • A Joint Letter has been sent to Local Councils from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs concerning public access to tips and toilets.  One element of this communication should be welcome to some, as it recommends that councils should avoid unnecessarily tight restrictions like a limited number of pre-booked slots.

  • I don't normally use this Community Web Site for personal views or comments, but what we saw last weekend at Bournemouth and other places was just moronic and selfish and the rubbish left was a total disgrace - with total disregard for the majority of us who just want to see us all get through these difficult times and beat the Coronavirus.
