Land earmarked at Creekmoor for new school is axed by opposition councillors

Bournemouth Echo: The proposed site in Creekmoor The proposed site in Creekmoor

A POLITICAL row has broken out over a possible site for a new secondary school in Poole.

Land earmarked for education use on the edge of Creekmoor was axed after opposition councillors voted it down at full council.

“Mad and in completely the wrong place,” said an opposition Liberal Democrat, while a member of the Conservative cabinet labelled their actions “totally irresponsible”.

Three possible sites were put forward for a £45-55million secondary school which will be required by 2018 and now two remain for further investigation.

They are the Bournemouth and Poole College site at Constitution Hill Road and the Dolphin Swimming Pool and car park in Kingland Road.

An amendment put forward by Cllr Phil Eades to axe the Creekmoor site was approved by 19 votes to 16 with one abstention.

“It is absolutely mad and in completely the wrong place,” said Cllr Eades.

“The demand for additional secondary school places is coming particularly from Lower Parkstone and it makes absolutely no sense to place another school in the outer reaches of the borough with no existing cycle lanes or bus routes to enable students to access the school.

“Not only this, it is greenfield land that benefits everybody, particularly local residents of Creekmoor.”

He said not pursuing it would save the cash-strapped council £230,000. However, Cllr Mike White, cabinet member for regeneration, said it would save a portion of the £700,000 budget but it was not known how much. “I think what they have done is totally irresponsible,” he said. “It shows that the Liberal Democrats can’t be trusted.”

He said their three representatives had voted for it at the schools capital board.

“We have almost certainly got to find a new secondary school,” he said. Constitution Hill would be next to the new junior school and there would be traffic issues and the Dolphin Swimming Pool site was restricted in size.

“I am disappointed that despite an awful lot of work by an awful lot of people it has not been allowed to go forward,” he said.

 

• Ward members shocked

Creekmoor councillor Judy Butt said she and her fellow ward members were shocked when the site north of Upton Road was voted down.

“It may not have been the right site but it should not have been knocked out of the equation,” she said.

“It gave the people of Poole a wider choice. We were very disappointed when this was something positive for the people of Creekmoor to be consulted on.

"That has been removed from them.”

So basically all that fuss about Eddie Mitchell's decking was just to see if anyone in Poole was prepared to object to Poole park being used to build a new school. Anyone got any maps of when the park was laid out and how much of it has been sneaked off ready for development by calling it a nursery for example?
Will the lottery grant to improve the park just be spent on concrete foundations aka art installation/adventu
re playground ready for the new school to be built there?

The other week there was a report about there not being enough swimming pools in Poole and Bournemouth now reading that council want to build a secondary school on it. If there's seeing as there is more demand from lower parkstone build a new school on parts of view point and the old college field or any other open space in that area?

I would ask the council - how does the site at Creekmoor benefit the whole community? It's fenced off and as far as most locals are aware, it's part of private farmland - and certainly it has never been used for community events!

Typical of Poole council - knock down Seldown School and then years later realise they did actually need it ..... bolt and door :o/

I thought that there were two secondary schools in Poole that are only half full, so why do we need another one? Please do not build on the Dolphin swimming pool site, since they closed the sports centre in the Dolphin shopping centre (which is still empty) this is the only sports facility in the actual centre of Poole.

Have to say out of the 3 proposed sites the lower Constitution hill one makes the most sence being that it's closest to the area mainly affected by the school place shortage and there are already cycle lanes and public transport routes in place. It's also a fairly big site. To build on the dolphin swimming pool site would mean more traffic in the center of town, and less car parking

Poole already has a very large school right in the centre, and hordes of teenagers bussed into it every day. Why does it need another one, especially at the cost of losing a swimming pool that the Council have been trying to get rid of for years, exactly as they got rid of the sports centre.

The site on Constitution Hill makes sense in some ways, but given that they're already building a junior school there the traffic and parking would be a nightmare.

At the risk of being hopelessly naive, why not improve the existing half empty schools until people want to send their children there?

The Creekmoor site was allocated for education when Creekmoor was built. This needed infrastructure was not carried forward, not the fault of the developers but the Council, so the children of Poole have to attend some of the most underachieving schools in the country.
The site is now green belt and close to Dorset Heathland so should not be developed for housing or travellers. However, a school for Creekmoor would be excellent.
Cllr Edes wants the school in Parkstone or as close as possible to give children in his ward the best of education. I agree he would like to soften Creekmoor up for a revised traveller proposal. Can I ask this question , what has Creekmoor done to deserve your continued aggression?

The population of the UK grew to 64.1 million in mid-2013, representing a gain of 400,600 (0.63%) over the previous year mid-2012. This growth is slightly below the average since 2003.


This means that the UK’s population has increased by around 5 million since 2001, and by more than 10 million since 1964.


Natural change (births minus deaths) contributed slightly more than net international migration to the population gain in the year. There were 212,100 more births than deaths (53% of the increase) and 183,400 more immigrants arriving than emigrants leaving (46% of the increase).


The estimated populations of the four constituent countries of the UK in mid-2013 are 53.9 million (growth of 0.70%) in England, 5.3 million (growth of 0.27%) in Scotland, 3.1 million (growth of 0.27%) in Wales and 1.8 million (growth of 0.33%) in Northern Ireland.


There were 792,400 births and 580,300 deaths in the year ending 30 June 2013. The number of births decreased from the previous year but is still above average for the last decade. The number of deaths increased from the previous year and is the highest since the year to mid-2005.


The population of the UK aged 65 and over was 11.1 million (17.4% of the UK population) in mid-2013, up by 290,800 from mid-2012. The number of people in this age group has increased by 17.3% since 2003.


Growth of the UK population in the year to mid-2013 was higher than the EU average and highest of the four most populous EU member states.
