Capital investment

In 2013/14 we will spend £109m on school buildings and other children’s services projects. This will include building two new primary schools in Aldershot and Waterlooville, making improvements to Stubbington Study Centre, and a number of schemes at primary, secondary and special schools across the county.   

£62m will be spent this year on improving Hampshire's transport infrastructure and on the structural maintenance of roads, footpaths and bridges. Project Resilience, our seven year programme of structural maintenance and resurfacing of the highway network at a cost of £10m per year, is now in its third year.

We will be spending £11m in 2013/14 on adult social care projects and maintenance. The majority of this spending will continue to be on our Extra Care housing programme, which enables more people needing care to stay in a home of their own rather than go into residential care.

In addition, there will be general investment to provide future capacity and to help Hampshire’s economy grow. Over £9m will be spent providing broadband to rural areas and £6m on improving IT for schools. Investment in smaller schemes in the culture, communities, waste and environment areas will continue.
