Residents will soon have the opportunity to review and discuss potential plans for a new mixed-use development in the north of Poole which could potentially provide 2,500 much needed family homes.
A series of public consultations are about to go live in venues across the Borough of Poole where the developers are looking forward to meeting interested members of the public. As part of this process a new website has been launched to outline the scheme which includes a new school, surgery and other community facilities.
We would recommend that those wishing to attend the exhibitions find it useful to visit the website in advance at www.canfordpark.co.uk for further information.
Consultation dates are as follows:
13 September : 3pm to 8pm Bearwood Community Centre
15 September : 12 noon to 5pm Poole Library, Dolphin Centre
19 September : 3pm to 8pm The Spire (Methodist Church), Poole High Street
20 September : 3pm to 8pm Canford Cliffs Village Hall
22 September : 3pm to 8pm Oakdale Community Partnership Centre
27 September : 1pm to 5pm Community Room, Tesco Fleetsbridge
29 September : 3pm to 8pm Canford Magna Centre
Planning Consultant, Brett Spiller of Chapman Lily Planning said: ‘This is an important scheme which will impact the whole borough, hence why we decided to host consultation events in all corners of Poole.
‘‘We hope that residents from across the town will wish to learn more about what we are potentially planning for the future of Poole. We believe our scheme offers benefits in supporting the local authority’s housing targets without impacting existing height and mass issues in existing built up areas. Therefore we feel it will be of interest to anyone and not just those in the Canford Magna area, to attend.’’
