The Senate recently received a presentation from Stuart Jarvis, Director of Economy, Transport and the Environment, Hampshire County Council on the Hampshire economy. As a development of of that report, Stuart Jarvis will make a further presentation to the Senate about the profile of Hampshire. This will be in two-parts:
a) demonstration of the County Council’s new Desktop Geographic Information System designed to provide easy access to map an information based analysis and presentation tool for Members and officers,
b) visual presentation of evidence, using thematic mapping on a range of demographic and economic challenges facing Hampshire in the future, such as the ‘drift’ of younger households to urban and urban edge locations; increased birth rates; the ageing of the overall population in rural areas and the disproportionate impact that this will have on the sustainability of rural communities.
The Senate are invited to consider and debate the issues and to identify areas that would benefit from a joint approach in the future.
Stuart will then follow with a presentation which looks in more detail at the future of infrastructure funding following the decision to restrict S106 Agreements to fund off-site infrastructure after April 2014 and the Lords debate on the Localism Bill. Transitional arrangements for new initiatives such as the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) will need to commence soon therefore the Senate are invited to discuss the options available to Hampshire local authorities to ensure delivery of infrastructure in the future, replacing a system which has served Hampshire relatively well to date.
