The Solent Forum

Working in parnership for the future

Consultation

The consultation period ended in February 2019. The methodology and sites identified have been recorded below for future reference.


Consultation Phases

The Solent Forum was contracted by the Environment Agency to consult on the structures that were identified in Southampton Water by the opportunity mapping that the Agency undertook in 2017. The consultation was undertaken in three phases:

  1. We will contact and ask those with potential local knowledge of the structures whether they are still in use, if they know whether they have any historical or ecological value and if they can identify the landowner.
  2. Work with archaeological bodies to establish the best mechanisms to determine how people can identify if structures have historic value, e.g. what to look for and where to go for more information. 
  3. Work with nature conservation bodies/those with experience of ecological enhancement to look at the different types of structures, e.g. slipways, for the different habitat types mapped in Southampton Water, e.g. saltmarsh. Agree general principles on whether it is better to leave structures in situ, remove them, remove and undertake remedial work or identify opportunities for ecological enhancement

Phases 2 and 3

We will be contacting people directly to help with this part of the project, but if you would like to input into these phases, please email the Solent Forum Office at solentforum@hants.gov.uk.


Phase 1 - Consultation on Existing Use of Structure and Current Value (Historical/Ecological)

Each of the structures have been mapped in GIS; the structures have been broken down by river basin catchment - New Forest, East Hampshire and the Test and Itchen. The River Hamble was consulted on in 2017 and is not included in this consultation. The two maps of Southampton Water below give an overview of the location of the structures. The plotted points are colour coded by catchment -  New Forest (green)East Hampshire (red) and the Test and Itchen (blue).

An aerial image of each structure has also been prepared and placed in a file with a simple table to record consultation comments. Each structure has been given a unique ID with a prefix that identifies the catchment -  New Forest (NF)East Hampshire (EH) and the Test and Itchen (TI).These images can be viewed in the structure files in the three tables below.

We have also prepared spreadsheets for all three catchments that give the grid reference for each structure, so that you can view them in your own systems if this is helpful.

What do I Need to do?

  1. View maps one and two above that give an overview of the location of the structures to see which areas you have knowledge of and identify which catchment they lie in.
  2. Use the three tables below to find individual structures - there is one table for each catchment -  New Forest (NF)East Hampshire (EH) and the Test and Itchen (TI)
  3. Select the file of the structure of which you have knowledge and download (Word files). 
  4. Fill in the table in the Word file, attach it to an email and send it back to the Solent Forum at info@solentforum.org.
  5. If you have comments on multiple structures, you can alternatively download and use the grid reference spreadsheet above  to record your comments as this will be quicker. Please make sure that you check the structure ID and include your name in a new column heading.
