Name Titchfield's new park

Residents in Fareham are being asked for their help to name a new park in Titchfield which will open in Summer 2019.


The new park will run along the A27 on Southampton Hill and will be the size of 15 football pitches.

Plans include a play area, orchard, wildflower meadows as well as educational wildlife areas and beehives. Visitors will also be able to enjoy footpaths, interpretation panels with details of the park's surroundings, seating, dog bins and a small car park.

Now residents are being asked to cast their votes for one of three choices or suggest a new name for the park during a consultation period from Saturday 12 May to Friday 22 June.

People can choose from the following options:

  • Tannery Meadows – Tanneries were an important industry in the village from the Middle Ages.
  • Abbey Meadows – The new park is next to Titchfield Abbey.
  • Meon Meadows – The Meon River runs to the east of the site and flows through Titchfield.

Executive Member for Streetscene, Councillor Simon Martin said: "The new park will be for the whole community to enjoy and I would encourage everyone to help us name this great new facility." 

To help decide the name of the park, you can vote online at visit Titchfield Community Centre or drop a token into our voting box in the foyer of the Fareham Borough Council offices.

Children at Titchfield Primary School, Ranvilles Infant and Junior School and St Anthony's C of E have also been invited to take part and vote.

Residents will also be able to vote at Community Action Team (CAT) meetings taking place at across Fareham during May and June.
