Christchurch Borough Council wants your views on Stanpit rec
Christchurch Borough Council is looking to make improvements to Stanpit recreation ground and is asking local people to give their opinions.
Public consultation begins next Monday on the scheme which has been awarded £120,000 from developer funding collected to mitigate the impacts of housing development on local heathland.
The suggested improvements include something for everyone. Dog walkers will benefit from a dog agility area, cyclists will have better facilities such as cycle racks and a priority lane, families will benefit from new play structures as well as new picnic areas, there will be improvements to vehicle and pedestrian access at the entrance and the car park will be made larger.
A more varied and attractive landscape will be created establishing patches of wild flowers and meadow alongside existing mown areas. It is hoped this will benefit wildlife and improve wildlife corridors to adjacent sites such as Stanpit Marsh.

The consultation will help the Council understand how local people value the site and what they think of the proposals. We would encourage everyone with an interest in the site to give us their thoughts.”
