Fleet Pond Corridor

This project, managed by Hart District Council, aims to create a more connected environment that will improve walking and cycling links to Fleet’s railway station. 

The Fleet Pond Corridor builds on work already completed to increase cycle parking provisions at the train station. It will also link into the Council’s wider Green Grid project to connect communities.

The northern path running beside the train station, including the access point to the train station is now OPEN. 
Please remember that Phase 2 works are still underway. Fleet Ponds access track and car park remain CLOSED. There is no access to Fleet Pond via the bridge off of the A3013. 

Accessible circular walks on established paths can be found at Bramshot Farm Country Park which is just a short distance from Fleet Pond. Under 3mins in the car and around 10-15minutes on foot. Both Hartland Park and Southwood SANG's are also nearby, more information about these sites can be found at: www.tbhpartnership.org.uk/greenspace   

Phase 1 (completed) Footpath widening, including a new slipway at Boat House Corner Picture showing new path leading off into the distance

The path that has been improved runs adjacent to the train station car park, it is a route that is well used by the community. Previously this path was not sufficient to safely cope with the large amount of footfall and mixed user group activity. The works have widen the path to allow everyone to pass each other easily, making travel significantly easier and safer. Cycling calming measures to reduce cycling speeds will also be installed.

Open water and Reedbed habitat improvements

Significant contributions towards mitigation, ecological improvements and education for visitors at Fleet Pond will be provided to protect and enhance the site’s wildlife. This money will be used to support environmental projects above and beyond the site's usual maintenance and management plan. This includes mitigation work which will improve open water and reedbed habitats.

Phase 2 Improvements to the Access Road and Fleet Pond Car Park

There is currently no parking, vehicle or pedestrian access to Fleet Pond from Cove Road. This includes the area used for parking on MOD land. Pedestrians & cycles will be able to get through to Hartland Park via the bridge. Works to improve the access road and Fleet Pond's car park should be complete by the end of July. See the map below:
