The Department is the third largest spending department within Hampshire County Council. In 2011-2012 the Department will spend over £130 million providing a wide range of services for Hampshire in these roles:

  • Local highway authority (looking after 5000 miles of roads);
  • Waste disposal authority for Hampshire (disposing of over 840,000 tonnes of household waste).
  • Planning authority (for minerals and waste and County Council planning applications).

Note: Previously called the Environment Department, the Department's name was changed on 1 April 2011 in order to reflect:

  • New responsibilites for economic development work, as a result of internal changes
  • The onging importance of transport  and road maintenance work, for which the Department has always been responsible.
