AFC Bournemouth Development

A quick note to bring you up to date. The plans have as yet not been published for the proposed housing development along the eastern side of the stadium and the hotel and leisure complex on its southern side. I understand the hold up is with the environmental audit.

I’ve been contacted by a number of people concerned that the proposed access to the housing development will be through Thistlebarrow Road, where a house has been purchased by the developers and will be demolished to make way for the access road.

I have made our opposition clear to the developer, one of his agents wasn’t very responsive to the suggestion they should look at an alternative route. However, I spoke to another representative over Christmas who did not appear completely adverse to the idea of an alternative route through King’s Park Drive being considered.

I’ll keep you up to date.

King Park Drive is the best way forward for routing traffic to the hotel complex.Thistlebarrow Road is really not an option.
