Active Travel Improvements; Brookley Road

Last update: April 2024

Latest updates

Following drainage surveys on site to assess the existing drainage under the site proposed for construction as part of the ATF Brockenhurst improvements, HCC have discovered that the drainage in this location is in need of extensive repair.

To improve the longevity and over all aesthetic of the ATF Brockenhurst scheme, it has therefore been decided that the drainage improvements will take place prior to the main scheme. This decision has been made to ensure that the work put into constructing the ATF Brockenhurst scheme is not affected by future work that may be necessary to rectify the drainage in the area.

To avoid public holidays and the busy summer season in this area, the drainage scheme is proposed to take place late summer with the main scheme installed in Winter 2024.

Scheme Overview

Hampshire County Council is committed to creating better spaces for people to be able to walk and cycle in and around our towns more easily. The County Council has successfully secured funding from the Government’s Active Travel Fund to deliver a number of measures across the county which support this commitment. The views of local residents and stakeholders are important in shaping the measures to ensure they meet with the needs of the local community.

In 2020, temporary measures were introduced on Brookley Road to support social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic. The County Council consulted with local people in 2021 on proposed measures to improve the temporary social distancing measures. Taking into account this feedback, we have worked with the Parish Council to develop a new scheme which builds on the supported measures.

The aim of these measures is to improve quality of life and wellbeing through an enhanced public space and enable increased walking and cycling in Brockenhurst.

Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
