Affordable Housing for Sparsholt

A public consultation took place on 7 November. Details presented of the proposed scheme can be viewed at   https://www.winchester.gov.uk/housing/new-affordable-housing/early-stage-schemes.  

Drones

Operating drones is not illegal; however, users are restricted from repeatedly flying them in close proximity to residential addresses and doing this could lead to them being dealt with for Anti-Social behaviour or committing a S.4a/S.5 Public Order Act offence.

If you are concerned that a drone appears as though it is being used in suspicious circumstances e.g. if it continuously hovers over a particular area, please contact the Police on 101.

Traffic

Speed and volume of traffic through the village is an ongoing concern.

In 2014 kerbs were installed along a number of roads in the village. While protecting the verges they have also contributed to a notable reduction in speed as it is more difficult for vehicles to pass side by side. 

Details of traffic survey undertaken in 2015 can be viewed here
