Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals Trust plan to develop Christchurch Hospital0
The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) expressed its thanks to everyone who has supported the resubmitted plans for Christchurch Hospital with more than 1,500 letters having been received so far.
The Trust recently resubmitted its planning application for the development of Christchurch Hospital which will secure NHS services at the site as well as provide a range of other community services, including a GP surgery and assisted living accommodation.
The original application was turned down by Christchurch Borough Council’s Planning Committee in January. As a result, a number of positive changes were made to the application, due to go before the committee on 14 March.
So far more than 1,500 letters of support for the latest application and two signature petitions have been sent to the council. We expect comments to be in a ratio of 100:1 in favour of the proposals. The deadline for comments has also been extended to March 14.
If you would like to express your support, write to Kim Bowditch, Christchurch Borough Council, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 1AZ or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is essential that you quote application numbers 8/13/0028 and 8/13/0029 and include your own address and postcode.
