DEVELOPMENT, THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY

LOCAL DEVELOPMENT, THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY:

Many Residents concerned about Space for Nature and the risks of over-development responded to a very short 2 week 'Consultation' proposing a new strategy for 'Enhancement' and Development in Christchurch Town Centre. If adopted, this Strategy will determine Council policy for the next 20 years. £200,000 has been set aside for the Consultation exercise led by a London based firm of Architects .

A petition calling for more time and a more thorough consultation is in circulation.

TRANSITION TOWN CHRISTCHURCH launches “ GARDENSHARE”

GARDENSHARE
An exciting scheme to match garden owners who have unused garden space to enthusiastic growers who don’t have gardens. There is even advice available for beginners.
Use your spare garden space more productively by agreeing to let someone else use it and you both share in the produce. Nothing tastes better than freshly picked vegetables.

Please text or phone 07849 431612 or email:contact@transitiontownchristchurch.org
