Christchurch Local Plan Review.
The Christchurch Local Plan review is a 218-
It is unclear if this will be superseded once the unitary is created.

Sir Ross Cranston, a High Court Judge, has refused the Judicial Review submitted by Christchurch Borough Council in a bid to defeat the Government’s decision to merge with Bournemouth and Poole. Leave to appeal was also refused.
Thus the Ancient Sovereign Borough has been consigned to the annals of history to become a minor suburb of the Greater Bournemouth Unitary.
The result for Mudeford and Friars Cliff is the reduction in numbers of councillors from 3 plus half a county councillor to just 1.
This used to be called a democratic deficit. Any candidate for the position at the election in May next year must be willing to work far more hours than our councillors presently do and will hopefully be or have been at least middle to upper management level.
Remuneration will be higher than currently enjoyed but savings are liable to be much less than forecast.
New Unitary Council
Following the EGM on the 16th March, we are pleased to announce that SAMRA managed to recruit some new committee members to fill the vacant positions.
Mike Duckworth was voted on as Chairman and Josie Spencer took on the role of Secretary.
Kathy Kidd was also co opted onto the main committee.
We thank them all for volunteering to save the organisation
