Havant Borough Council & GBS Designs working together

The car park at Purbrook Chase Precinct has always been a free for all in terms of positioning of vehicles. As a resident I have even witnessed arguments and more regarding parking. But not any more............

The traffic management team have been working closely with me following a suggestion to line the public car park located in Purbrook Chase Precinct.

From an article shortly to appear in Havant Borough Council's magazine Serving You:

Glenn Bramble-Stewart, a local resident and Chartered Building Engineer approached the traffic management team to suggest that the car park be formally marked to maximise the available space within the car park. He had kindly prepared a plan showing exactly how the car park could be marked. The plan was reviewed by the traffic management team and it was agreed that Mr Bramble-Stewart’s idea was something that should be pursued.

A works order has now been placed and the car park will be lined in the coming months. We hope that this will benefit the community as a whole and would like to thank Mr Bramble-Stewart for taking such a positive interest in the local area and working with the team.

If you have any suggestions that you would like the traffic management team to consider please email and one of the team will be very happy to discuss your idea with you.

So as you can see, councils are willing to work with residents.

On personal level I would like to thank Miss Emma Pond (Senior Traffic Engineer, Parking and Traffic Team at Havant Borough Council) for open mindedness and 'can do' attitude towards this scheme that will make many lives much easier - thank you Emma.
