Hook Lake Public Drop-In Event July 2022

Engaging with the local community and wider stakeholders is an integral part of the Hook Lake Coastal Management Study. Key stakeholders will have a unique view on the use and future management of the Hook Lake Site and are a valuable source of information for the project team to incorporate into the project’s development. 

Following early work with the engineering consultant Binnies UK Ltd to identify a shortlist of appropriate coastal management approaches that show potential to deliver the necessary intertidal habitat at Hook Lake, the project team are inviting residents and visitors to drop-in and engage with our information events.  

The events will be a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more about the coastal management study, speak to the project team and to share views on the shortlisted approaches being put forward. 

Drop-in events will be held in the Hook Room at Warsash Victory Hall (SO31 9HW) on:

  • Tuesday 12th July 4pm – 7pm

  • Wednesday 13th July, 1pm – 4pm

We look forward to seeing you there!

Public Exhibition Questionnaire July 2022 

To support our first exhibitions, we are looking for further feedback from the community and visitors to Hook Lake. 

This second visitor survey (July 2022) focuses on feedback from the exhibitions and your understanding of the project itself.

We would really appreciate your help by completing this short questionnaire consisting of 9 multiple choice questions. Some of the questions are based on the information presented at the Exhibitions, which is also available digitally via clicking here

You will have the option to leave us wider feedback and questions at the end, as well as opt in to receiving future updates to stay informed in the study as it progresses if you wish.

There is an online version of the survey if you need to access.

The deadline for responses is Tuesday 26th July 2022.

A summary of the events will also be prepared and shared here in due course.

Visitor questionnaire 2021 results:

In Summer 2021 we launched a visitor survey to seek the community’s views on Hook Lake with Warsash Nature Reserve. Respondents were asked how they use the area, what they value most about the reserve, what the key issues are for them and what improvements they would like to see.

The top five answers to these key questions were….

Q: What do you do when you visit?

What Do You Do What Do You Do

Q: What do you value most about this location?

Value Most Value Most

Q: What issues at this location, if any, currently concern you?

Issues Concern You Issues Concern You

In addition to creating new habitats, are there any specific improvements you would like to see in this location?
