New Milton Police Local Neighbourhood

Parish records began in 1654. In these records there is shown to be a poor house in the town in 1790 and in 1836 a National School was erected close to Old Milton Green. The most significant change came to the town when Milton Station was built in 1886 (the line opened in 1888).

The name New Milton was first used when a Post Office, opposite the train station, was named New Milton P.O instead of Lymington P.O.

In 1912 much of the area of Whitefield was preserved and used as a War Memorial Recreation ground.

It was in 1974 when New Milton became a Neighbourhood Council in the newly created New Forest District Council. In 1979, as part of the Local Government Reorganisation, New Milton Town Council was formed.

New Milton, in the latest Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), was ranked 21,398 out of 32,482 in England, where 1 was the most deprived and 32,482 the least.

ASB
Re-occurrence of ASB in the passage underneath the residence of Charlotte Court, New Milton. Youths reported to congregate underneath and causing damage and intimidate residents

Charlotte Court
Old Milton Road
New Milton
Hampshire
BH25 6DX

We are pleased to report that there have been no calls to Police made regarding ASB in Charlotte Court between the 5th of September and the 17th of October. This is an improvement compared with 7 calls in July and August. Increased police activity and education to the young people we have been in contact with seems to have reduced the occurrences as a short term measure, however a long term strategy is being developed between Police and the Charlotte Court Management Company. Until the long term strategy is in place, New Milton Neighbourhood Police team will continue regular patrols when possible.

If you need to report any incidents of Anti-Social Behaviour please call 101 or 999 depending on the urgency of the report.
