Your local Policing Team needs your help in setting our Local Community Policing priorities for your area for the next six months.  In order to ensure we are working effectively in the community we need you to tell us what issues are affecting you the most.

Our aim is to reduce anti-social behaviour and crime as well as to make your neighbourhoods safer places to live and work.Continue Reading


Are you fed up of sitting in traffic on the A31? Is your road used as a rat-run when the A31 is busy? Are you affected by traffic noise or pollution from the A31?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then now is the time to have your say!

Highways England, which is responsible for the strategic road network (including the A31) is seeking your views on issues that affect you. They are in the process of gathering evidence of issues such as congestion, disruption on local roads as a consequence of the road network, litter hotspots and noise, as well as trying to identify future challenges.

This is an opportunity to make your views known, identify where improvement is needed, and have an input into where government invests in the strategic road network up to 2025.

Information is being gathered via an online mapping tool, where specific issues can be pinpointed to an exact location or an entire stretch of road.

Have your say at by the deadline of 1st July 2016.

Cllr Chris Treleaven, Chairman of the Council’s Planning, Town & Environment Committee said: “I would like to encourage all residents to use the Highways England online mapping tool to identify issues of concern relating to the A31. Please also make your views known to the Town Council so that they can be taken into account in the Council’s response to this consultation. Issues can be submitted by email to or in writing to Ringwood Gateway.”
