Residents to discuss proposed transit site for travellers at Marshes End

Bournemouth Echo: Christine Cross Christine Cross

THE FIRST meeting of a neighbourhood watch scheme was held last Saturday in Creekmoor.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, Martyn Underhill, joined residents, local councillors and the committee of the association to celebrate the 35th Neighbourhood Watch Scheme created in the county within the past year.

However, Cllr Judy Butt, ward councillor for Creekmoor, told residents that it had not been created because of proposals for a travellers’ site offering temporary stopping places at Marshes End.

She added: “This neighbourhood watch is very timely, but one thing that Creekmoor do not want to be accused of is that, if we do have the temporary stopping places, the scheme was set up because of it and we can say it wasn’t.”

Christine Cross, chairman of Creekmoor Residents’ Association, said: “We are looking to meet residents and get together, become more neighbourly and represent the local area, which includes finding people to represent their roads for the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.”

For more information on the Residents’ Association, contact Christine on 07709 267725 or email Chriscross1@ntlworld.com

A residents’ meeting is being held today at Creekmoor Community Centre, at 5pm, organised by the local councillors to discuss the proposed transit site for travellers at Marshes End.

Even the time (9:15 a.m.) for the planning decision/meeting about the "TSP" at the Lighthouse dated 20th March 2014 is designed to make it difficult for the public to attend. Mum,s and dad,s taking children to school and those working?

Plus pensioners with bus passes not being able to use them.

Another underhanded move with these plans. And they wonder why we don't trust them.

Off course pensioners as well, sorry I forgot to mention.

Perhaps the BOP can lay on a round robin bus or coach to bring the people of Poole to this important event?
I am sure the cost would be small in comparison to the amount spent so far on the TSP planning.
