Thanksgiving and Dedication Service for Waypoint Church

It was an honour to be invited to speak along with Rev Mark Madavan at the Thanksgiving and Dedication Service for Waypoint Church marking the culmination of 10 years hard work to bring the new £5m building into being to serve the community. I am pleased that Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council were each able to support to the tune of £40,000 with 96% of the cash being raised by the congregation.

The investment by the councils gains wider community use of this amazing building which provides facilities and outreach for younger and older residents and all those in between. I congratulate the church team for their great achievement.

Plenty of local residents attended the event to launch the construction of Stubbington Bypass.

I am so pleased to have started this important project including many improvements to access for Fareham and Gosport in 2013 as Hampshire County Council Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment. I worked for the next few years to take it through the public consultation to the grant of planning permission. Then on to obtaining £34m of funding via government and Solent LEP

The Bypass will when completed in 2022 be the final piece in the package of measures I introduced including improvements to St Margaret’s Roundabout, dualling the A27 from Fareham to Segensworth, a new Newgate Lane South and improved Peel Common Roundabout.

All of these measures taken together improve traffic flows between Fareham and Gosport ands onwards to the M27 at junction 9 as well as assisting the important employment site Solent Enterprise Zone at Solent Airport, Daedalus

Good to spend the morning with the Fareham Conservatives Campaign Team in Fareham today discussing future plans and policies for our administration in Fareham before taking them out to discuss with our residents. We keep in touch with everyone throughout the year, not just at election time.
