Black Lives Matters Protest

  • News

The Council has received an approach regarding a Black Lives Matter protest being held within the Borough. In taking a consistent approach with other events which have been cancelled on Council land in June and July, the Council is not able to give formal consent to an event taking place on its land in Walpole Park.

However, we recognise the sensitivities around this issue. As a result, we are liaising with our colleagues in Hampshire Constabulary regarding the event, including how it will be policed and monitored by us in partnership should the organisers choose to go ahead.
