Ferndown residents fighting proposal for drive-through

Bournemouth Echo: Rodney Darrington, far right, and other residents from Homelands House in Ferndown, are protesting against plans for an £85,000 crossing on Ringwood Road. They argue that the crossing would be much better at the Victoria Road crossroads Buy this photo » Rodney Darrington, far right, and other residents from Homelands House in Ferndown, are protesting against plans for an £85,000 crossing on Ringwood Road. They argue that the crossing would be much better at the Victoria Road crossroads

FRUSTRATED Ferndown residents are taking action after their opposition to a KFC drive through takeaway failed.


More than 50 people attended a meeting to set up the Ferndown Residents Association and make their voices heard at the district council.


The move comes after controversial applications for a KFC restaurant at the old Volvo garage and a pedestrian crossing along Ringwood Road, plus flats in Golf Links Road were passed.


A protestors’ statement read: “East Dorset District Council is setting a precedent for the area which none of us want.


“They seem determined to turn our semi-rural, peaceful location into yet another seedy, run-down metropolis, full of takeaways, garish advertising hoardings and a Mecca for anti-social behaviour.”


The group want to take a stand for the community.


An organiser, Carol Atkins, lives at Homelands House, where residents lost a fight against a pedestrian crossing outside on Ringwood Road that they say is in a dangerous position.


She said: “We want to stop things like this happening again.


“We want to work with the councils rather than against them, but we feel the council was greedy because it is cash-strapped and can’t say no when developers come round.”


People raised fears about an estimated 56 cars visiting the KFC every hour. It will have 18 parking spaces.

Carol added: “Where are all those cars going to queue up? Along the Ringwood Road and then they’ll probably snake onto Victoria Road.”


Supporters of the residents association will hold elections for committee positions and write a manifesto in the near future.

kfc - classy! A drive through-wow so you can take in your calories and fat without expending any energy at all . Joking aside it's tragic that big corporations can be allowed to brainwash people into eating cheap c***p whilst despoiling towns with their identi-kit plastic trashy "restaurant" that provide minimum wage jobs at best. Please please try cooking your own food using fresh ingredients- once you do you'll never want to eat over-salted, high fat food again.

It's not about the younger generation. I'm 38 and used to eat McD & KFC until I read Fast Food Nation. It's about the evolution of fast food and how USA got the state they are in now because of it. As nice as it tastes you will struggle to swallow another Big Mac after reading it.

I agree with a lot of this, though I expect people will always want to eat this kind of food. It's pretty cheap and extremely convenient and eliminates preparation time.

What some people fail to realise is that because of the large number of calories, it is only appropriate very occasionally for those who are sedentary and totally inappropriate for anyone who is overweight.

There is also very little evidence that overall, low-fat diets are useful. It's overall calories that count and often people who do 'low-fat' make up for the fat calories by consuming far too many carbohydrate calories.

All I ever hear (especially from the elderly) is that the younger generation do nothing but cause anti-social behavior... Give them a break! I don't understand how a fast food outlet will cause anti-socail behavior yet they give planning permission to a bar just up the road from it that is more likely to cause such behavior.

I hope this residents group will also object to the ever increasing number of sheltered housing developments in that area. This type of development has ruined Ferndown and turned it into a geriatric ghetto. Perhaps KFC should have a drive thru lane just for mobility scooters!

Alan, that's a very ignorant attitude. I was the same as you until a mate got me to read the book. When you have fast food companies like Burger King sponsoring schools in the US what chance do the kids have.

This is a classic case or people moving into and area and wanting it to stay preserved in aspic.

The warden assisted flats at some point required planning permission - what would have happened if a group had organised against them? Where would you be living?

What oldies fail to consider is that someone has to work in their homes and hospitals and until we start having a decent mix of businesses and affordable housing then these kind of old age ghettos will continue to flourish and there will be no-one to work in them.

Don't want to appear negative (that's a lie) - but when was the last time you were in a KFC (or Mc or BK) where the vast majority of the staff did not have english as a second language?

Hardly "more jobs for the single parents and dolees".

Oh come on!!!

Look, I love KFC but I am not deluded to think "there’s nothing unhealthy" about it.

You state people are not "an authority" and should not have an "oppinion" (sic) but clearly there is a need for education and opinion to help the ignorant (not pointing any fingers obviously....) who are not aware a KFC has little nutritional value and a massive amount of saturated fat.

The kind of fat that means people get very fat, very unhealthy and ultimately a very big burden on the NHS.

None of our business? Maybe not directly but in the long run....

But surely it's just "chicken and potatoes" and there's nothing wrong whatsoever with fast food corporations paying schools in the US lots of money to hook 6 year old kids into eating it.

"theres nothing unhealthy about eating chickens and potatoes". The problem is it's not just chicken and potatoes is it.

Most of its trade will be in the evening so its hardly going to cause massive traffic jams. As for an increase in traffic? Do you really expect people to drive from far and wide to get a drive through? If people eat KFC or the likes its generally as a treat and not a lifestyle so all the mass hysteria about a drive through is snobbery and plain simple"not on my doorstep" syndrome. Oh and the ridiculous comment of where are they going to queue? ITS A DRIVE THROUGH.

Unfortunately your information is wrong Dibbles. KFC expect around 56 car visits every hour and you have to queue for food, even at a DRIVE THROUGH. The 'not on my doorstep' is not snobbery it's simply because the KFC is in the wrong place as the SHARED entrance will be very near to an already dangerous Junction - lives will be seriously at risk.

Old People & Hippies, the two groups that normally contribute the least and moan the most!!! Add vegetarians to the mix and you have super moaners!! I eat KFC, I am not obese and nor are my children who eat more vegetables and variations than most grown ups I know. Well done to the council, a business opening in Ferndown during a double dip recession is to be welcomed not condemned.

Dear Delta 3
A Multi-National takeaway opening in Ferndown during a recession will finish off the family run food outlets.
Ferndown would have been better having- Next, Costa Coffee,Game, Body Shop or Blockbusters etc NOT another takeaway.
Ferndown will now have 20.

The article does not say who expects 56 cars per hour. It does not say where that figure comes from be it the people protesting or KFC. That may be 56 cars per hour at peak times which like I said is in the evenings. It unlikely to be rammed all day long lets be honest here! Lives are seriously at risk at many Tesco express stores which have extremely dangerous parking but so far no one has been killed or injured.

There is a McDonalds drive through just past Tricketts Cross so why deprive the Ferndown residents of convenience food. I think it could do with a few more Tesco Express stores too.
