Fleet Pond, Hampshire

Have your say on the future of Hart

Hart District Council has opened its latest consultation on its draft Corporate Plan. The plan sets out the Council’s vision and priorities for the next five years and they are asking all local residents for feedback.

4 key priorities

The draft Hart Corporate Plan sets out 4 key priorities, which are to achieve:

  1. A thriving local economy
  2. A clean green and safe environment
  3. Healthy communities and people
  4. Becoming a more efficient and effective Council

The strive for efficiency comes as no surprise as councils, like many other organisations and companies, are under pressure to do more with less. The draft plan sets out the key actions that will be taken to achieve these four priorities. They include some significant investments such as creating a new secondary school for the district. The plan also touches on accommodating additional housing development for affordable homes, to assist the 1,320 (August 2017) people who are currently on the housing register.

You can find out more about the draft Corporate Plan on the Council’s website www.hart.gov.uk/corporate-plan-consultation-2017. This includes information on the plan itself as well as how to have your say using their online form. The consultation is open until 4pm on 31 October 2017 so you have 7 days left to add your thoughts.

Paul Hemmings, Check 4 Houses

What’s it like to run a business in Hampshire?

This week sees the Virgin Media Business Voom Tour take place in Winchester on Thursday 19th October. Ahead of the event, Virgin spoke to three local Hampshire businesses including our very own Paul Hemmings. They discussed their views on running a business in Hampshire.

Paul says: “Hampshire is a great place to live and work in. Our landscape offers a real mix of major cities and towns as well as rolling English countryside. We also have many excellent schools in the area and top quality sporting opportunities.”

A supportive local community

Paul says he has found the Hampshire business community very supportive since starting Check 4 Houses seven years ago.  “I started Check 4 Houses in 2010 after becoming increasingly frustrated by the behaviour of other estate agents. I wanted to create a flexible and reliable service for customers that was as stress-free as possible. Since starting the business I have found the local community very positive. They value honesty, transparency and are open to change. There are more and more people running their own businesses and keen to support each other.”

Modern day innovation with traditional values

In terms of culture, Paul says that Hampshire embraces innovation, but still retains traditional values. “Particularly in an industry such as estate agency, word of mouth recommendations are still our most effective marketing tool. People still value personal relationships with real people, despite the rise of social media.”
