The Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council has expressed concern that the opening of a new shopping centre at Whiteley could lead to "traffic chaos".
Councillor Sean Woodward has told ITV News Meridian that workers at the Whiteley shopping centre have been advised to park on nearby residential streets.
This is because the new shopping village which opens tomorrow only has 1,500 parking spaces.
Workers at the nearby business park are forced to deposit their cars on main roads because of limited spaces.
