Views Wanted Over Christchurch Depot Redevelopment

People in Christchurch are being asked for their views on possible developments at the council's Grange Road depot at a public exhibition.

Over recent years, the council's use of its depot at Grange Road has reduced and a further significant reduction will take place when the Dorset Waste Partnership relocates to other premises shortly. There is an opportunity to redevelop the site to improve the quality of the environment for residents and businesses.

In trying to find appropriate sustainable uses for the site, the council needs to investigate all options and to consider aspirations from others including residents and businesses. As part of this, the council has appointed Savills to prepare a Planning and Development Brief for the site and to engage with the local community.

The exhibition is on Wednesday 22 October when display boards setting out the history of the site, current policies as well as site constraints and opportunities will be available along with representatives from Savills and council officers. It will be at two locations:
- 12 noon to 5pm - East Christchurch Sports and Social Club, Grange Road
- 6pm to 9pm - Mudeford Wood Community Centre

Exhibition material will also be available at www.dorsetforyou.com/grange-road-depot.  

Questionnaires and comments sheets will be made available, with the last date for responses being Wednesday 19 November.  All responses will then be analysed with a draft Planning and Development Brief being submitted to the council's Community Services Committee on Wednesday 17 December.

Once adopted, the Planning and Development Brief will be used as guidance to shape the future use of the depot site.
