        Dear Resident,

 

As the Mayor of the Parish of Whitehill for 2019-2020 which includes Bordon, I would like to personally welcome you to our town. Part of my role as Mayor is also being the Chairman of Whitehill Town Council (covering Whitehill & Bordon), which is your most local level of government.

Bordon is currently undergoing major development with lots of exciting changes currently in progress, including a brand-new secondary school called Oakmoor School which is due to open in Autumn 2019. This will replace the existing school with more up-to-date facilities and opportunities, so we can give our children the best start in life.

There are also plans in place to extend the Budds Lane Bordon Infant and Junior schools to provide further school places for new residents with young children, not to mention the other four fantastic primary schools already in our area.

Due to open in early Spring/Summer 2020 is the new Leisure Centre, which our Town Council supported and is a big improvement on our current 4 lane swimming pool and will have 6 lanes, separate smaller pool and state of the art gym facilities. Further plans have been presented to us regarding a new town centre, cinema and health provision. We as a town council are consulted on such plans and will always look to represent residents.

Our town has been gifted with natural beauty, both Hogmoor Inclosure and Bordon Inclosure are designated as “Suitable Alternative Natural Green Spaces” (SANGS), which are specifically designed for the use of residents. Our Town Council manages the Bordon Inclosure and took on this project to provide for local residents.

Since 2 May 2019, I am one of fifteen elected councillors who represent the community on the Town Council and our full details can be found on our website. If you have any questions, you can contact us using any of the details above. If we do not have the answer, then we can do our best to help and point you in the right direction. You are invited to “like”/follow our Facebook page for updates, as we are keen to keep in contact.

Once again I wish to welcome you to our town and on behalf of myself and my fellow town councillors, I wish you all the very best.

Yours faithfully, 

Town Mayor sign off
