Druitt Hall, Christchurch High Street, by library BH23 1AB
At this month's meeting of the Christchurch Citizens Association two members will give a powerpoint presentation with discussion to follow.
This is a very important local issue and all are welcome.
In October last year many Christchurch 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. The draft attracted much local criticism.

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.

SCRUTINY MEETING re FELLING OF PROTECTED TREES in
TTC meetings ‘Druitt Gardens: Space for Nature ‘ and ‘Trees in Towns’ explored the importance of natural spaces in town centres.
Druitt Gardens in Christchurch are covenanted to be maintained as a town centre woodland and nature reserve, and a recent campaign to protect Druit trees at risk from a nearby development resulted in Area Tree Protection Orders.The Council's subsequent felling of 4 of these after damage by the Developers provoked outrage in March.
