  1. I agree that we need new affordable homes, but I am concerned about the impact 875 homes will have on traffic problems we already face in Barrack rd and Fairmile rd Christchurch. perhaps this is time to think again about a bypass.

  2. im concerned about yr planning application in chrischurch with so many more houses being built with only direct access to the A35. the A35 is currently far too congested in rush hr with lots of traffic at a standstill! this causes lots of problem in stony lane with traffic backed up then trying to get onto the stony lane roundabout which is already very busy in rush hour. this leads to heavy traffic trying to get into christchurch and fountain roundabout being blocked. access to bargates and barrack road has been increasingly difficult. if you are planning on building so many more houses extra roads need to be built to address the traffic problems which already exist.

  3. I have already expressed my concern regarding access to schools, in particular primary schools. The current provision is either on the other side of the Someford Bypass or on the other side of Roeshot Hill (and a long way away). For this site to be viable, there needs to be proper provision for schooling on the proposed development.
