Changes to the way public notices are published
Wednesday, 05 September 2012
Following a tender exercise earlier this year, Hampshire County Council now places statutory public notice adverts in a free publication called the Hampshire Independent.
Public notice adverts are placed in local newspapers to give the public information such as road closures, speed restrictions and planning applications. By publishing the notices in a free newspaper, the council aims to make public notices widely available in a cost-effective way.
The new arrangements are less costly to the taxpayer, as it is cheaper to advertise in one publication that covers the whole county, rather than to pay for many different adverts in different areas.
All public notices can also be viewed on the Public Notice Portal. People who don't have access to the internet at home can visit this web page at their local library.
