Christchurch Council seeks views on Stanpit Recreation Ground proposal0
Christchurch Borough Council is thinking of making improvements to a local recreation ground and is asking locals for their opinions on the scheme.
Public consultation is about to start on proposals for improvements to Stanpit Recreation Ground which will enhance the appearance of the site and offer people greater enjoyment from this important local green space. It will also provide a richer and more varied environment for wildlife.
The scheme has been awarded £120,000 from developer funding collected to mitigate the impacts of housing development on local heathland. The key aim of the funding is to encourage the use of alternative sites in order to protect fragile heathland from more intensive use and the damage this can cause.
The public consultation will run from 11 March to 31 May and responses can be given online at www.dorsetforyou.com/stanpitrec. Paper copies will also be available at the Civic Offices, Steamer Point and Stanpit Marsh Information Centres, Christchurch and Highcliffe Libraries and the Christchurch Information Centre.
