Consultation about North Miller’s Dale Yellow Lines.

A general notice covering several proposed schemes has been published (see below) but a significant amount of it relates to North Miller’s Dale. In a previous Miller’s Tale newsletter we discussed the concern residents had voiced about the joining of the North Miller’s Dale Road from some of the side turnings because of restricted view caused by parked vehicles. The proposed no parking sections are designed to partially address this. I would draw your attention to the deadline for objections which is 27th Dec.

The actual location of the lines took a bit of interpretation from the notice so I have, I hope fairly acurately, transposed them onto a map. I have inserted the map below the notice which I hope will give an indication of the scope of the plan.

Flexford Nature Reserve safety concerns

FlexfordNigel Williamson launched a one man campaign to bring the state of the footpaths through our local nature reserve to the attention of the Council, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and the NMDCA. He told the editor of the Miller’s Tale that he has had responses to his document, offering a donation from the council and assurance from the Wildlife trust that they will organise contractors to address the issue.

Public consultation on Eastleigh polling districts and places

No photo description available.

Eastleigh Borough Council is carrying out a review of its polling districts and polling places – and residents are being asked for their views as part of the consultation.

The Council is required to complete a full review of all polling districts and polling places every five years. The aim of the review is to ensure that electors in the Eastleigh constituency have reasonable facilities that are accessible to all electors, including disabled people.

The Council would like residents’ comments on the polling station they used the last time they voted in person at an election and are asking: Were you happy with it? Can you suggest something better?

The 2019 review will run until midday on Friday 6 September 2019.

Borough electors can comment by either emailing or writing to the Electoral Registration Office, Eastleigh House, Upper Market Street, Eastleigh SO50 9YN.

Have your say on how the County Council could balance its budget


The County Council is keen to hear from as many residents as possible. Residents’ views are very important and will help inform any proposals brought forward later in the year. It may be that not all North Millers Dale residents are aware of this yet. The closing date is 17th July 2019.
