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.

CPRE’ s 2026 Vision for the Countryside
This new charter for the countryside describes the England CPRE wants to see in 2026, their centenary year.
The Vision, produced after wide consultation, pictures a countryside in 2026 that is used and valued by all as a national asset, helping create a healthier, less stressed nation where people are in tune with the environment and aware of their impact on it.
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.
