Public Consultations


Survey : What Do You Do to Stay Healthy : For 60-70 Year Olds.

This Survey being undertaken by the West Hampshire Clinical Commissiong Group - is focused on finding out what people between the ages of 60 and 70 do to keep themselves healthy. It is linked to a previous survey but has a slightly different context. We would like to use the intelligence gathered from both surveys to inform how we develop services in the local area.

General - Dorset's Consultation affects us in New Milton


Proposed changes to services at the Royal Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Hospitals WILL affect people living in New Milton.  People living in Hampshire will not be affected by proposed changes to Dorset's community services but we may well be affected by proposed changes to the way in which acute services are available to us all, as the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group proposes changes to the services which they offer at their various Hospitals.

Unfortunately only by accident this morning, I learnt about a Public Consultation being held TODAY (18th January) at The New Milton Memorial Centre until 7:00 pm - where you can learn about these proposed changes and what their impact might be on your own access to specialist hospital medical services in the future. If you are able to visit the Centre today, then please do try and get along to learn more.  There will be further opportunities at Consultation Meetings on February 7th, 8th and 15th in Ringwood and Bransgore (more information will be published on in due course)

However, there is more information on-line and an on-line version of the Consultation Questionnaire which we would encourage you all to complete. 


If you cannot make these Meetings (and we appreciate many of us missed this important announcement) you can complete the "Acute Hospitals Section" of an On-Line Questionnaire at :-


New Milton Town Council  

New Accessible Play Area for New Milton Recreation Ground

Plans for a new, secure play area and adult open air exercise apparatus on the recreation ground are being presented by New Milton Town Council for public feedback. Designed with accessibility in mind, the play area suits children, of all abilities, up to 12 years, while the exercise equipment is suited to adults of all ages and varying abilities.

The play area takes on a medieval theme to promote role playing - with equipment that allows children to use their energy to explore, climb, swing, jump, slide, bounce, rotate or zip on a variety of equipment – whether playing individually or in group play.

A number of companies provided proposals and quotations with Proludic being selected, scoring highest in a number of areas including play value.

The provider’s plans, including an artist’s impression of the play area and gym equipment, are now being made available for public feedback before being finalised.

Feedback is invited from any interested parties – including parents, grandparents, carers – anyone who might want to bring children along to the play area – as well as those who would like the opportunity to use the adult exercise apparatus, including carers and older adults.

Closing Date :  Friday 9th September @ 4:30 pm

Hampshire County Council - Relevant to New Milton


This consultation concerns the county of Hampshire: the area covered by Hampshire County Council and the 11 district councils in Hampshire. It does not cover the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton or the Isle of Wight. However, some of the options for change in Hampshire do refer to the two cities and the Island.

Hampshire County Council is asking for the views on different ways that the County Council and the 11 district councils in Hampshire could change, or be reorganised.

The Local Government Boundary Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Hampshire County Council.

The aim of the electoral review is to recommend electoral division boundaries that mean each county councillor represents approximately the same number of voters. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of divisions reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw division boundaries across the county.

We are currently inviting local people and organisations to tell us where they think new electoral division boundaries should be drawn across Hampshire.
