Hawkley Parish Council

Upper Green Bench

The Jubilee celebrations on Upper Green allowed the recently reinstated bench to be admired. It was no mean feat to get the bench back in place and we would like to thank Dom, Mick and Juke from Lower Green for all their hard work to get the seating back in place.

Highways Issues

To allow HCC to get a true picture of concerns and difficulties being experienced on the local roads, it is important that accidents and issues are logged – ideally when they have recently happened and with photographic evidence. Anyone can report any road related issue: from flooding or pot holes to paving….

Notice from County Councillor Oppenheimer about waste and recying

I would like to share this link to a blog which I have written about Waste and Recycling. I know this is an issue of concern to many so I thought you might find it interesting.  

Fly tipping

If you see builders’ waste or other rubbish dumped on public land, please report it in one of the following ways:

If you actually see the offence being committed ring the Police on 101 giving full details

Or ring EHDC customer services on 0300 300 0013.

Otherwise use the online contact form that can be found at

The council will remove waste and rubbish left dumped by fly tippers on public highways and public land, and whenever possible, will prosecute those who offend in this way.

Dog Fouling

Hawkley Parish Council has received several complaints recently about dog poo not being picked up by a small minority of dog owners.  Many people exercising their dogs carry bags, pick it up and bin it. Others simply kick it off the road or pathway into the verge and out of harm’s way. However, the amount of mess being left behind on our lanes footpaths and open spaces, whether in bags or not, has increased once more. This is a criminal offence - please clear up after your dog!


The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police Force has established a single overall response team covering the whole of East Hampshire although neighbouring area response teams will respond to issues in our area if necessary.  Policing is now managed in three parallel “Strands”

Neighbourhood  and prevention

999 and emergency

Gathering Intelligence

Policing now relies heavily on gathering local intelligence. The presentation and subsequent discussion was largely around gathering intelligence throughout rural communities. The police share intelligence and try to spot any themes and trends.

Rural crimes tend to impact particularly farmers and landowners but it is recognised that thefts from within rural communities often has a significant impact on those communities. These can be distressing but are also are costly and disruptive.

There are particular initiatives for rural communities. For example: Alton Police and Countryside Watch working with Game keepers to organise patrols. This has been successful in catching many poachers in the act and has led to prosecutions. Fly tipping is another current issue. The Police want people to report tipping to them, as well as EHDC, so they can share intelligence.  A ‘Police Report’ should also allow landowners to deposit such rubbish at the recycling centre free of charge.  

Clearly, this process can only be as good as the intelligence it gathers: That is where you come in. Please ring 101 (the non- emergency number for Hampshire) with any intelligence in our local area.  This can be a report of a crime, suspicious activity or simply to identify a potential risk or hazard.  Big or small, whether you think it’s relevant or not”.  The more proactive we are, the safer we make our community.  For example, if you see an unfamiliar car in the road – jot down its number and a description.

There are two websites that are really useful which they encourage our community to join. Hampshire Alert ( ) gives local and relevant real time information on what is happening in our area. Immobilise ( ) is the UK national property register. If you register your valuable items on this site before they are stolen, it really improves your chances of getting them back. The Hampshire and IOW police Force are part of this initiative.

Our local PCSO, John Payne, holds “Pop Up Beat Surgeries” in Hawkley Parish Hall during “Coffee and Chat”. Dates are posted on the Parish Hall notice board together with his contact details.  The email address for the East Hants team is:  and the East Hants website is: .
