The latest Car Park Management Plan was approved (with conditions) by GBC Regulatory Board on 15 January 2020. (Click here to download a copy of the decision notice).
The RCMRA Secretary gave a representation on behalf of the Residents Association, supported by the Secretary of the Gosport Access Group and Disability Forum. Both then answered questions from the Councillors on the Board. A representative from Berkeley Homes also gave a representation and was questioned by the Board members. The Councillors then debated the issue and considered a proposal from the local Ward Councillors to defer a decision for a site visit to look at the issues raised. In the end, the majority of Councillors voted instead to approve but required additional conditions to be added to the approval to address the issues we had raised and their own concerns about electric vehicle charging.
The conditions require Berkeley Homes to provide further detail for approval on a number of elements, including the following which were of concern to the Residents Association:
Pedestrian and disabled access
Lighting in the car parks
Hard landscaping for North Meadow

We don't have any information as yet on a timeline for the ground works and when the new parking management is expected to be active but will share that as soon as it becomes available.
In the meantime, the current "Interim Parking Management Scheme" (managed by Horizon Parking) remains in place and nothing changes for the time being.
