POOLE residents are being invited to have their say as the council reviews its 21 conser-vation areas and considers dropping some.

Comments are being sought on 12 areas, designated for their special architectural or historic interest, which are being re-assessed by Borough of Poole.

These are Ashington, Brun-stead Road, Beach Road, Branksome Park, Canford Cliffs, Canford Cliffs North, Chester Road, Compton Acres, Evening Hill, Harbour Heights, Haven Road and The Avenue.

Residents are being asked to comment on suggestions including minor changes to the boundary of the Brunstead Road area and to limit permitted development rights imposed on property owners in the Ashington and Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill areas, such as the protection of historic windows.

And to change the boundaries of Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill areas and remove the designation of five areas, Beach Road, Canford Cliffs, Compton Acres, Even-ing Hill and Harbour Heights.

Cllr Mike White, cabinet portfolio holder for planning and regeneration, Borough of Poole said: “Conservation areas play an integral part in the make-up of our town.

“However, the charac-ter of a conservation area will change over time and so it is only right that we periodically review these designations.

“As we are proposing to make changes to some of these conservation areas, it is important that we listen to the views of local people. We hope as many people as possible will let us have their feedback on these proposals.”

To comment on the documents go to boroughofpoole.com /conservationareas, the Civic Centre or the Central Library, Canford Cliffs or Broadstone library.

Comments can be emailed to planning@poole.gov.uk or in writing to Planning and Regeneration Services, Borough of Poole, Civic Centre, Poole BH15 2RU by September 3.

I would have thought that after the atrocious handling of the latest illegal 'traveller' fiasco most of these hapless Poole Councillors should concentrate on their own conservation and self preservation - because the bulldozers arrive next year!

Does this mean the council has spotted some land that they want to build on but they can't because it has a conservation order on it ?

Fully agree with you, the same bulldozer will be arriving in Christchurch at the same time. Time for a major change in the whole of Dorset.
Hopefully some fresh bloody with some intelligence will be installed within the council chambers.and hopefully, they will only have one vote each when it comes to voting rights.........
Sorry to ramble on but I guess the regulars will know were I'm coming from.
PS, did you all know that the leader of Christchurch Council gets two votes .
