About
us
Hampshire County Council is planning major changes to the road network and facilities around North Camp. The plan is to widen Lynchford Road into a 4-lane dual carriageway (apart from a small section outside the fire station). This will have a major impact on North Camp village, its residents and small traders, and in particular the 1000 plus children who cross the road to and from Wavell school. The stated purpose of the widening of the road is to serve Farnborough airport, the many businesses on the business park and the Exhibition Centre. We believe that it will contribute to the further decline of North Camp. Please see all the material on this website and take part in these decisions which will significantly affect the future of your village for generations to come. We are here to keep you up-to-date, give a voice to your ideas, and to help make North Camp the place you want it to be for the future.

Timeline

14th November 2017

Plan for Farnborough Growth Package presented

A report on the Farnborough Growth Package is presented to Winchester-based Councillor Rob Humby

23rd January 2018

Public consulation

A series of public presentations are organised and feedback is gathered. The schemes for North Camp's Lynchford Road are largely derivative with no wider alternatives offered for connecting the new community of Wellesley and Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre with the A331. Of those who responded to the questionnaire, 34% supported at least one the schemes presented. Of the remainder, 34% rejected the plans completely and 32% said they might be able to support the proposal as they develop. The main concerns raised centre on the impact on the community from increased traffic, air-quality and noise. This includes pupils and teachers of the The Wavell School who cross the Lynchford Road daily. To read the full consultation report, click here.

13th March 2018

Plan of improvements approved

NCSG delivers deputation to the Council decision group. The document raises significant concerns with specific emphasis placed on the planned widening of Lynchford Road and its impact on local residents, visitors, and the children and staff at The Wavell School. (Read it here)
Despite this Councillor Humby approves the report’s recommendations in full and work to develop the prioritised schemes is begun. Perhaps in recognition of the concerns raised, a key inclusion in the decision is that the scheme's planners should engage in further public consultation.

1st October 2018

Final plans published

You can see the plans here or on the Hampshire County Council website. The plans have changed to show a 4-lane dual carriageway from top to bottom except for 3 lanes outside the fire station.

Consultation period 1st Oct to 12th Nov

Two drop-in events are being held at the Holiday Inn, Farnborough, on Monday 15th and Wednesday 17th October between 2pm and 8pm. The public will be invited to complete a questionnaire.

This is the last chance for the community to have a say in what happens to Lynchford Road and North Camp. Please attend one of these events if possible and complete a questionnaire. If you do not want a 4-lane dual carriageway along most of Lynchford Road, say so on the form. If you can't make it to an event, please complete the questionnaire online.

North Camp Suport Group Public Meeting, 12 Oct

A Public Meeting was held to inform residents about the plans.

A presentation was given showing the implications of the plans on traffic movements through North Camp Village. Short talks were given by members of concerned local groups namely: a representative from the Wavell School governors, the Rushmoor Cycle Forum and Friends of the Earth.
There was a constructive discussion, the community was able to meet together and share their views.
Everyone was urged to complete a survey form. Paper survey forms were available at the meeting for those with no access to computers, as it was apparent that there was little general awareness about the survey.
