If the preservation of Hedgehogs or the elimination of Rats is of interest to you you may like to make a note in your diary. Following the decision of the Chandler’s Ford and Hiltingbury Local Area Committee meeting to refer the motions about Rats and Hedgehogs to the Eastleigh Borough Council Cabinet for resolution you may be interested to know that the public can attend and speak at these council meetings.
The Cabinet meeting is on Thursday 14th June at 18:30 at Eastleigh House. The public can speak to any item on the agenda when that item is reached. Members of the public can also speak on any item not on the agenda at the start of the meeting provided they’ve let the attendant officer know they wish to speak before the meeting starts. The Hedgehogs and Rats are to be Item 7 on the revised agenda. Apparently Cabinet meetings are usually ‘very brisk’ and Item 7 should be reached quite quickly.
