Land North of Merley

We the undersigned petition the council to refuse the proposal under planning application APP/19/00955/P to build 600 houses on land north of Merley, which until recently was protected by Green Belt status.

We believe that the detrimental effect of the increased volume of traffic in neighbouring areas will have a severely adverse impact upon the lives of local people, and upon the historic conservation village of Canford Magna.

Further, we believe that the development will put further strain on local amenities and services such as health and education provision which may not be fully mitigated by developer contributions.

We believe that development of this land (UE1 in the Poole Local Plan) is completely inappropriate.

We therefore urge BCP Council to consider other ways to meet its housing targets.

(Details of the planning application can be viewed online at https://boppa.poole.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_POOLE_DCAPR_257036)
