We believe that developing land adjacent to a SSSI site and near to protected Heathland will have a detrimental effect on the existing wildlife, habitat, flora & fauna.
We believe that building a road to access the new school development, to sustain school traffic, will greatly impact the ecology and environment.
Another site is available for development adjacent to the existing school, it is within the village boundaries and does not have the environmental pressures of the currently proposed site.
On November 28th 2011, the Government announced that it planned to scrap Portland's search-and-rescue helicopter. This helicopter serves some of Britain's most popular and perilous recreational waters and one of Europe's busiest shipping routes.
We believe that local knowledge is paramount to providing an effective and efficient emergency service at sea, where a few minutes are often the difference between life and death. This cut will cost lives.
Bournemouth council say that having an authorised transit site available in the borough will mean the police can use powers to evict travellers who camp illegally on private or public land they would then be required to use the available site or leave the borough.
Having managed sites can reduce problems with associated anti-social behaviour and limit the detrimental affects on travelling communities health, education and well being.
Many youths aged 16+ like to camp. But there is nowhere we are allowed to camp safely in our area.
So we wish to vote to create a specific camping area for youths to camp safely in our area.
Some examples of class A drugs are:
There is no one organisation that collects information about drug-related deaths, for all of the UK. But people die from it every day and helping tackle it will reduce the number of uncleanness deaths.
'Hanham's Ground is two hectares of open green land used as a cricket field since 1793, adjacent to the River Allen, and close to the centre of the historic Dorset Minster Town of Wimborne. For several years, Waitrose have been trying to acquire the site in order to build a supermarket.
Despite strong local opposition demonstrated by several local petitions, East Dorset District Council perversely granted planning permission in February 2009 and construction on the site commenced during January 2010.
The land is adjacent to the River Allen, a Biodiversity Action Plan Habitat, and home to otters, rare white-clawed crayfish, water voles and other wildlife. There are grounds for believing that measures taken by the developer are inadequate to protect the water from harmful pollution. A significant proportion of the development site lies within a flood plain.
Hanham’s Ground lies within a Conservation Area and the developer has failed to demonstrate that the supermarket will harmonize with existing town centre buildings, in accordance with the district council’s own Planning Guidance. The change of use from an open green playing field to a supermarket and two-level car park, will irreversible affect the character of the town centre.
The site lies close to a busy road that is already congested at peak times. The provision of an additional 215 parking spaces is estimated to increase traffic by 2000 vehicles per day.
This Petition to the County Council must be submitted by 19 March 2010.
The Kube art gallery is being forced to close at the end of January 2010. It is a purpose built, award winning art gallery in Poole, Dorset and houses an internationally significant collection of art.
The Kube is the only big visual arts space between Southampton and the Tate gallery in St Ives, Cornwall.
It has employed hundreds of artists for workshops and performances, showcasing work of local, national and international artists of real significance.
It has a world-class education programme, and offers workshops and activities for everyone from toddlers, to workers, to residents, students, artists and community groups.
This year has been the Kube’s busiest year, with 4 times more people visiting the gallery than last year. Despite this Bournemouth & Poole College has decided to withdraw its funding.
The gallery has been described as a national asset of an international standard and the Arts council have expressed their bitter disappointment at its closure.
Stop the closure now!
Headway Dorset is an independent voluntary organisation affiliated to Headway UK the Brain Injury Association. Headway Dorset receives some funding from Bournemouth and Poole and Dorset Primary Care Trusts, regional Dorset Social Services and private donations and sponsorships.
The service was set up in 1993 and now provides a comprehensive, needs led service, including Occupational Therapy, Psychiatric and Counselling Services, Physiotherapy, Community Rehabilitation throughout Dorset. Headway promotes wider understanding of brain injury and provides advice and support to people with brain injuries, their families and carers.
A brain injury happens in a second - the effects last a lifetime. The number of brain injury survivors in Dorset grows every year. 60 people each year will require round the clock care for the rest of their lives. The majority of head injury survivors are young people aged 16-28 with a normal life expectancy. The burden of care often falls upon the family with 1 in 300 families affected by brain injury.
Headway Dorset will have to close its day centre fron the end of July 2008 because Poole Social Services (who own the present premises) are rebuilding and the local Primary Care Trusts are not willing to give funding for new premises. I believe they have a DUTY to fund this essential service otherwise they are discriminating against brain injured survivors.
Please sign our petition to show your support for our cause; hopefully you will never have to find out first-hand just how crucial this centre is.
