Asphalt plant - HCC gives itself go-ahead
Residents will hardly be surprised to learn that at a meeting of Hampshire County Council's Regulatory Committee on 15 March, plans were approved for the revival of the council's own asphalt production plant at Micheldever Station. County Councillor Jackie Porter, Parish Councillor John Botham and Micheldever Action Group member Nick Drew, as well as local residents, had all made strong cases against.
However, important concessions were gained: permission was granted for only five years, during which time thorough monitoring will take place as required by the Environmental Permit granted in February. This means that after five years the future of the plant will be reviewed and, if necessary, closed in the event of serious environmental breaches. In addition, a dust management plan must be submitted alongside a traffic management scheme. Micheldever PC has already requested a current air-quality assessment to act as a baseline for future monitoring and is requesting local residents and businesses to inform it of any dust and emissions issues.
Jackie Porter will ensure HCC correctly draws up these conditions, without loopholes.

If you live in an older property, have you ever wondered who lived there in the past? We are currently in the process of transcribing census records, which were taken every 10 years year from 1841 to 1911. There is a 100-year privacy law so later census records are not yet available. We have transcribed the 1851, 1861, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 census records for Micheldever Village, Micheldever Station, the A33 and Weston Colley and will be making others available in the future. Click Census Records to access these records.
