Proposed Development in Denmead ~ AQUIND Interconnector

The next development proposal to affect our local area is likely to be an infrastructure project led by AQUIND Limited.

The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power. It is estimated the Interconnector could become operational by 2022.

If residents have received correspondence directly from AQUIND, such as the Land Interest Questionnaire, or they have any concerns in relation to this Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) effecting Denmead, they have been advised by AQUIND to contact them directly. WSP's Land Referencing Team can be contacted via tel: 020 3116 9389 or by emailing  or accessing information on their website at 


Healthy Walks

Winter Walk 5 – Saturday 26th January -  West Meon

There were several new faces that joined the 40 walkers for the annual post-Christmas walk from the community centre of whom nearly 30 joined us at the Fox & Hounds around midday for a well-deserved drink.

Phil and Judith Hoar have kindly planned the next walk for us which starts in the public car park at West Meon.  Details of the walk including directions to the starting point can be found by CLICKING HERE. Walkers are advised to give themselves sufficient time to arrive at the car park ready for a prompt start at 10am, maybe slightly earlier if wishing to pre-book lunch at the Thomas Lord.


Walks planned for the remainder of the season are as follows:

23rd February  Bat & Ball, Clanfield/Hambledon

30th March      The George, Finchdean

4th May          The Vine, Hambledon

The walks from January to the last one at the start of May, all start at 10am and the usual preview will be published on the DPC website; walkers can therefore assess if a particular route is suitable for them.  Any queries should be directed to LYDIA MERRIMAN at DPC office on 023 9224 7947.
