1300 Christchurch Road
The developers have now made two fresh applications, one for 4 houses to be built on the site, each with one parking space, and the second for a single, large house to be built in the garden. Again, traffic concerns are of paramount importance with the site, being on such a dangerous corner. If you wish to comment on the applications you have until 30th March to make your views know to the Planning Department at the Council.
AFC Bournemouth Planning Application
If you remember there was an appeal lodged against the Council’s decision to turn down the application to knock down the house in
I’m pleased to say that the appeal was also refused. Given the financial problems at the club, it may be a little while before a further application is made, but I would suspect that a fresh application will eventually be forthcoming.

Environmental Small Grants Scheme
The funding is available for up to £1000 for community groups in Bournemouth. The projects must contribute towards improving the environment, green spaces or promote awareness or contribute to recycling targets. The funding can only be used for capital not revenue (so no wages or services) and the group needs to be a constituted group with a bank account in the name of the group (in some instances we may be able to work around this by asking for invoices to be sent directly to the Council).
Applications can be submitted at any time but the project must happen this financial year. The application process is intentionally simple if you would like to apply then you should contact Cat McMillan e-mail:Cat.McMillan@Bournemouth.gov.uk.

We would recommend residents oppose the application and have circulated our our usual letters explaining how to object.
