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.
