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 access to the train station will be closed from the 17th January. The whole path is now closed for several months until Spring 2022.  
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.

The whole project delivery will take place from November 2021 until Spring 2023

The area of the phase 1 works is shown on the map below. Please be aware that there will be limited access in and out of the railway station from the Northern Reedbed corner. Commuters will need to find an alternative route. Site notices will indicate when there is no through route at this corner.

Phase 1 Footpath widening, including a new slipway at Boat House Corner

The path that is being improved runs adjacent to the train station car park, it is a route that is well used by the community and as it is, it is not sufficient to safely cope with the large amount of footfall and mixed user group activity. The proposed works will 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

Phases 2 will be completed by Spring 2023. More information about this phase will become available closer to the time.
