Local Democracy Reporting Service
Hampshire County Council is to take over the running of public health services on the Isle of Wight.
The authority will deliver services including drug and substance misuse services, mental wellbeing support and sexual health assistance from next month, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.
The move, which has been requested by Isle of Wight Council, will not save any money but is aimed at ensuring the "best possible outcomes" for residents.
A school is being built for autistic children on the site of the former Chineham Park Primary School in Basingstoke.
Hampshire County Council is going to invest more than £10m pounds of government funding to build the school.
The new facility, due to open in spring 2021, will have places for 125 pupils with special educational needs and aged between 5 and 16.
