Our future now lies in the hands of Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid, who is expected to make his decision shortly.

Christchurch, Purbeck and East Dorset still reject the Future Dorset unitary council(s) proposition.

SAMRA insists on council tax parity if forced to unify.

Council Restructuring


We had a good turnout at the AGM and were given a presentation by the Christchurch Community Partnership about the various services they offer : Christchurch Angels, Neighbour Cars and Dial-a-Bus.

From a SAMRA AGM point of view we were unable to elect a Chair or a Secretary which are two key positions.

That said, unless we can find more committee assistance by the March meeting then we will Close the Association.

England Coastal Path

Planning Matters….

Avon Beach Promenade -  The application to raise the prom was approved by the planning committee so should commence soon.

We don't often get involved in neighbourhood planning unless we see a slightly controversial application in our patch.

115 Mudeford Lane is one we would like to highlight, demolishing a bungalow opposite the Dehaviland Way junction and replace it with 2 two-story 3 Bedroom Houses. The ridge height of the 2 new developments will be just 2m lower than the nearby Masonic Lodge to put them in perspective.

Please look at the plans (click here) - Comments are available until the 18th of November 2017.

Planning Objections


CBC have voted to increase planning objection letters from 12 to 18 in order to take an application to committee rather than be decided by officers.

Petition signatures have also been increased to 35.

SAMRA was not happy with this decision and was NOT consulted.

These changes are seen as a dilution of residents’ powers.

South WesternTrains

A PROPOSED new timetable could see direct services to London scrapped from smaller stations as new operator South Western Railway (SWR) launches a public consultation.  

They plan to halve the number of direct trains between Weymouth and London Waterloo and propose to discontinue direct services  from Sway, Hinton Admiral, and other stations.

The consultation closes on 22nd December. Click here for more information.
