Investing in the future

In 2011/12 we will spend £94 million on school buildings and other Children’s Services projects, including the refurbishment of Havant Academy; improved vocational provision in Fareham and Gosport; and a number of primary, secondary and special school improvement projects across the county.

About £18 million will be spent on capital repairs of schools and other buildings.

£67 million will be spent within the Environment service, consisting of £63 million to improve Hampshire's local transport infrastructure and on the structural maintenance of roads, footways and bridges, £1 million for environmental improvements and £3 million on waste management projects. The construction of the South East Hampshire Bus Rapid Transit Phase 1 Busway between Fareham and Gosport will continue into 2011/12 and is expected to be complete by December 2011. Project Resilience, which is a seven year programme of structural maintenance and restructuring of the highway network at a cost of £10 million per year, starts in 2011/12.

In addition to general investment across the range of cultural services totalling almost £0.5 million, and funding to support essential works at Basingstoke Canal (over £0.25 million), the Culture, Communities and Rural Affairs programme of capital expenditure also includes on-going building and development of the Runway's End Youth Activity Centre near Aldershot. The centre will provide a modern youth adventure activity centre to include a broad range of outdoor and adventurous activities with residential facilities.

In 2011/12 £7 million will be spent on Adult Social Care projects and maintenance.  The major areas of capital spend include capital repairs and improvements to Adult Social Care facilities, investment in additional Extra Care Housing, support for the transformation of Learning Disability services, the provision of equipment for the Integrated Community Equipment Store, IT developments and projects to improve efficiency.
