Hampshire County Council have closed the clifftop footpath from Milford-on-Sea to Barton-on-Sea until 15th November. This is due to unstable cliffs. The paths from Taddiford Gap car park and Barton Gold Club which lead to the clifftop have also been closed. The Parish Council have been working with the County Council, Natural England and the landowners to try and get the path re-opened as soon as it is safe to do so.

We will keep you informed of progress.
New Forest District Council has announced important changes to the content of the draft revised Local Plan, which impact upon our village. Following greater analysis, the land to the west of Barnes Lane identified as “Site F” has been removed from the plan. The timetable for reporting and consultation has also changed. This is due to ongoing work to assess flood risks and air quality impacts on protected habitats. The new proposals go to the District Council’s Cabinet in December, with the final round of consultation on the revised plans presented in January 2018. However, this still may change and we will update you of any revisions.
NHS West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group would like to hear the views of local people on the future use of Milford-on-Sea’s War Memorial Hospital for health and wellbeing services. The Group say the hospital is “an old building and clinical rooms and facilities do not meet modern standards for healthcare”.
The Group is “reviewing what is currently provided at the hospital and would like to know what services you use at Milford-on-Sea War Memorial Hospital. Keeping in mind that Lymington New Forest Hospital is only 5 miles away, we would also like to know what health and wellbeing services are important to you in the future which could be provided locally to meet the needs of the local community.”

The Seafront Play Facilities Survey has now closed. We received nearly 300 responses and the Parish Office are busy analysing them. We will bring you results shortly with details on the next stage of the process.
Although you can no longer comment, you can still view the plans here:
A consultation event regarding enhanced play facilities at the seafront will be held on Thursday 6th April between 2pm and 7pm at the Community Centre, Sea Road.
The Parish Council has been looking at a range of options to provide more interesting play facilities for children of all ages at the Seafront. The equipment will be paid for by Developers’ Contributions received by the Parish Council and which must be spent on enhancing open space facilities.
The areas concerned are firstly an area for young families to the east of the Needles Eye Café and the car park and secondly to the west of the Needles Eye Café of sufficient land to provide a worthwhile play area for slightly older children. This is in addition to the existing toddler play area. The Parish Council has decided not to include a skate/ scooter park or a zip wire.
Proposals setting out options for various types of equipment commonly used and valued in neighbouring towns and villages will be on display and the Parish Council invites the whole community to come along and give their views.
Pennyfarthing Homes have announced a new date for their consultation event for 46 new homes on the MOS1 site near the Primary school:
3pm – 7pm
Thursday 9 February 2017
Milford on Sea Baptist Church Hall, The Manse, Wayside Close, Milford on Sea SO41 0RN
