Whitehill & Bordon’s transformation, includes 5,500 new jobs, a new town centre, new schools and new leisure facilities, hopes to create a more active, vibrant and resilient community. The project is already well underway and the project partners aim to keep current residents actively involved in the regeneration process. As a result, a group known as Xchange has been established.

Xchange is a group of organisations whose common goal is to keep residents updated on the regeneration plans and aims to be a channel for raising concerns and questions about the changes.

The organisations involved are:

  • Community First
  • East Hampshire District Council
  • Homes & Communities Agency
  • Radian
  • Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company
  • Whitehill & Bordon Town Partnership
  • Whitehill Town Council

During 2016 Xchange members were out in the community promoting various aspects of the regeneration and responding to queries from the public. They had a busy information stall at The Whitehill & Bordon Festival, supported and promoted developer consultation events and organised events for charities and community groups to put forward their views about the regeneration. Whitehill Town Council & East Hampshire District Council also organised public meetings related to regeneration plans.

Xchange is currently working on a project to improve access to community information for both existing and new residents ensuring that newcomers to the town can integrate quickly into their local community.
