We are glad to let you know that the business plan for the acquisition of Haven House and its operation as a community hub, cafe and holiday flats was submitted to Hampshire County Council (HCC) on 13 June 2023. HCC have spent some time checking whether any information they considered to be sensitive or confidential should be redacted, but we are pleased to report that a copy of the business plan is now available – see below.

We have removed some of the detailed financial information from this publicly available version because it is commercially sensitive at this stage. However, as can be seen from the summary income and expenditure account in the Schedule, the business plan generates a modest annual surplus for THCH, very much thanks to income from the holiday flats, for which planning consent was received from Fareham Borough Council last month. If - we hope when - we get to the stage of agreeing terms with HCC we shall be launching our fund raising campaign and issuing the prospectus for community shares which will include a full projection of income and expenditure.

The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust have also put in their proposal for management of the nature reserve and have issued a press release which is on their website It is important for us to clarify that the HIWWT proposals and the THCH business plan are not interdependent: they are complementary, but do not depend on each other and each could proceed independently if necessary.

So, after many months of intensive work, we must now 'mark time' and be ready to respond to any queries from HCC, awaiting the decision which they have said will be made 'in due course'.

Further updates will be published on this site and on our Facebook page, Save Our Haven Centre!
