At the end of last year Hampshire County Council consulted with the local emergency services to see if they would support a trial closure of White Dirt Lane in response to the residents preferred solution. The emergency services would not support closure as they were very concerned this would affect local response times. Over the last months I have been pressing officers and the executive Member For Economy, Transport and Environment at HCC for road safety improvements, our next best option, and the decision whether or not to do this will be made early in July.
Very shortly HCC will be writing to the residents who live on the lane to update the position but to help ensure that the right decision is made locally I would welcome the support of a resident acting on behalf of everyone affected to help present the collective view as a deputation for the meeting.
