Brookley Road Scheme and cycle racks


Brockenhurst Parish Council have removed the cycle racks in Brookley Road following damage sustained in a traffic incident. The cycle racks, located outside of Tesco Express, were hit over the Bank holiday weekend and once the damage was reported the racks were taped closed. The tape was subsequently removed by cyclists parking their bikes. Despite continued heavy demand for their use over the Bank holiday period the cycle racks have been removed due to health and safety concerns.

The delayed Brookley Road scheme which would see these cycle racks relocated is subject to drainage redesign to resolve issues including pooling of water although the scheme is still likely to go ahead in the autumn.



New Forest Action Plan

A joint action plan has been created by forest organisations to respond to the significant increase in visitors expected in the New Forest this year as lockdown is gradually eased.  The plan has been developed jointly by Forestry England, the New Forest National Park Authority, New Forest District Council and tourism body Go New Forest with support from the Verderers, Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service and Hampshire Constabulary. 

It has been created to support the landscape and local community during this time and encourage greater care and respect for the area among all those spending time here.  Its focus is on all these organisations sharing resources in a concerted effort to be well prepared for and able to meet critical recreational pressure.  It aims to ensure that the area can play an active role in helping people to recover in the great outdoors whilst also caring for the Forest. 

For more information, please see the link to an overview of the New Forest Action Plan which includes key actions which will be undertaken during this time.  

Verge Restoration Works

Forestry England, having a legal duty to protect the New Forest, are undertaking a programme of verge restoration works to stop further vehicle damage across the forest, including Brockenhurst.  These works with various partner organisations - Verderers, National England, New Forest National Park, Parish Councils, CDA, residents and local staff - are funded under the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship Scheme. 

A number of areas are included in the proposed programme of remedial works which will include re-profiling existing car-free banks and ditches which have eroded over the years, and creating new banks where erosion has been caused by vehicle movements.  Dragon's Teeth (small wooden posts made from FSC Chestnut) will also be installed.

Flood Alleviation

The Parish Council have been working with various bodies to achieve flood reduction by identifying watercourses and drains that are particularly prone to blockage so that their clearance can be prioritised.  In low lying areas such as Brockenhurst it is particularly important that watercourses and drains are actively managed, especially during periods of prolonged wet weather.  

Please see the Flooding section of our link to Emergency Services webpage for more information.  

To report a faulty or blocked watercourse please phone the Parish Clerk on 622829 or New Forest District Council on 023 8028 5000.
