Redevelopment of the Highwood Road Community Site
The demolition of the old buildings in Highwood Road is about to start and Brockenhurst Village Trust has asked us to publicise the opportunity to provide new community facilities. These might range from sports/recreational facilities to further community buildings.
This opportunity is open to any village individual, community group or consortium of groups and the Trust will shortly be launching a consultation to find the best use. An initial public meeting was held on Sept 7th. Further enquiries can be made o the Village Hall office who are able to issue a site information sheet. Tel 622580 or email email@example.com
Burley Road traffic calming
The removal of a number of the pinch points will take place from 5th October. Traffic will be controlled by means of stop/go boards.
Travel Safe Video
The travel accident statistics affecting young people are shocking. This 4 minute video is a hard hitting safety film directed at increasing young people’s awareness of the danger they face in the streets and on public transport. Funded by local train companies and various public bodies it was filmed in Brockenhurst by a film team and the IoW College’s media department. More detail on Facebook.

To allow bridge strengthening and make the traffic lights permanent, the Sway Road bridge is being closed to motor vehicles for 6 weeks from 1st September. Buses will divert along Lymington Road, calling at the Island shop instead of the railway station.
Blue Star say alternative stops for passengers who normally board bus 777 in Sway Road will be available outside the Esso Petrol Station and at the Latchmoor/Sway Road junction.
