I am Dave Parham, and this is our Save Our Island website.

Save Our Island has been working on behalf of the residents of Hayling Island since January 2017, when a joint working group was set up by Havant Borough Council (HBC) to specifically work on the Infrastructure Plan for Hayling Island.

This group is called the Hayling Island Infrastructure Advisory Group (HIIAG). 

News: Please click on this paragraph to read the letter I sent today (24 November 2020) on behalf of HIIAG to Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP.

However, in recent time, HBC have chosen not to engage with any of the Resident Representative groups. Therefore, Save Our Island – as a non-political group – are working with all local Resident Groups, including those in Langstone and Havant, to stand up for the residents of Hayling Island in all aspects relating to maintaining a sustainable infrastructure essential to the economic future of our Island.

This website has a Document Library with chronological links to records of all the HIIAG meetings, and we have a News page which breaks down the papers into specific subjects.

This site is not meant as an alternative to the HIRA, or the NEHRA or the Langstone residents associations, or the Hayling Herald, with whom we work closely.

Please also read about our April 2021 Hayling Herald submission which describes the further damage to West Beach following the continued removal of sea defences; you may read the submission here.
