Windfarm Deadline Approaching! All objections must be with NPDL by Friday 5 April

The French company EDF and the Dutch company Eneco intend building the world’s largest windfarm just over 8 miles off Swanage and the Needles. The public consultation period ends on 5 April so if you object, or indeed support, the proposal you should email info@navitusbay.com and clearly state your views beginning “I object” or

“I support”. Please don’t let this opportunity to influence the outcome pass you by and then complain when its too late. When its built it can’t be moved!

For many people the argument is that the wind fam is being built too close to the shore and the turbines will dominate our skyline. Please consider:
* Our shoreline contains England’s ONLY Natural World Heritage site and two of England’s 34 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. So why won’t the developers simply comply with the written recommendation of the Department for Energy and Climate Change that wind farms should be sited 22km from shore where the coast line is sensitive (this recommendation is current practice in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands)?
* Tourism is probably the major industry of our area. Think about how this wind farm will impact the number of tourists, how the income they bring into our area will change and what this will do to our employment opportunities.
* Our homes are valuable but what would an industrial sea view do to our house prices.
There is a strong view that the “photos” the Developers have prepared understate what the wind farm will look like and so are misleading. You should look at the images on http://www.challengenavitus.org.uk/why-challenge-it.html

Whatever you do or don’t do you will have to live with the consequences and remember if you don’t like the skyline in a few years time it will be too late to change it.

A. Noted

Offshore Wind Farm – Roy Pointer reported on Poole, Christchurch &
Bournemouth Association Steering Group meeting held the previous day
(12/03/13). Things are going quite well and an association was now formed – The Poole and Christchurch Association whose prime aim is to liaise with around 40 Residents’ Associations in the area of impact. This is from Old Harry round to Highcliffe. There is also a small Steering Group formed of four representatives –
Purbeck, Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch. They will build up a document describing residents’ views and complaints which revolve around six issues – visual
impact, effect on tourism, navigation, bird migration, impact on the Heritage
Coastline,and health effects due to the noise.

Cllr Mike Green from Bournemouth has contacted RP. He has convened a public meeting for 23 March at 1.30 – 3.00pm, open to all, to be held in the Royal Bath Hotel.

RP has written the following piece for the Spring 2013 issue of the BPCCRA
magazine which is due to be sent out to all addresses in the BH13 postcode during the week commencing 8.April but the official end date for this phase of consultation is 5

April, so time is short for views to be made known.

“You can use email or letter. Write to:
• The Developers who are – Navitus Bay Development Ltd, Units 3 & 4 Athena
Court,Athena Drive, Tachbrook Park, WARWICK, CV34 6RT (email:
info@navitusbay.com) and (Letters to: FREEPOST, NAVITUS BAY WIND PARK – no stamp required).

Also, write, email or send a copy to:
• your MP, county or district councillor
• other statutory consultees eg. Natural England, RSPB (others are listed on the Challenge Navitus web site)

All members of your family and friends can write individually, so please encourage
as many people as possible to take part.
The official end date for this phase of consultation is 5 April, so time is short to
make your views known. However, even if you miss this date, still send in your
submission; it is easier for the proposal to be significantly altered or, better still,
scrapped early in the process and well before the formal planning application is
made. There will only be one more community consultation stage, in the autumn,
after which the process gets formal.
We are the guardians for the time being of the environmental gems that are the
Poole and Christchurch bays and the surrounding coastline; let us not be found wanting by future generations by doing all we can to get this proposal stopped.
Finally, don’t forget, the massive government subsidy paid to developers to make these wind farms financially viable is one of the reasons why your energy bills are substantially higher than they used to be.”

Road Safety concerns Lindsay Road/St Aldhelm’s Road Junction & Lower end of Wilderton Road: JS reported that, at the Branksome Park, Canford Cliffs & Sandbanks Neighbourhood Watch AGM on 15 February 2013, the Guest Speaker was Martyn Underhill, the Dorset Police & Crime Commissioner, mentioned that ‘Community Speedwatch’ (CSW) was being introduced via Neighbourhood Watches in Dorset.

The relevant kit is being sourced in order to roll CSW out force wide and the police are hopeful that they should achieve it by close to the end of March 2013 The proposals for Wilderton Road have been deferred to the next Canford Cliffs & Penn Hill Area Committee meeting on 17 April 2013.

Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan SPD: The Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan has been re-branded ‘Sustaining Poole’s Seafront’.
At last night’s Cabinet meeting, a decision was taken to to defer the discussion on the Supplementary Planning Document until the next Cabinet meeting on 16 April 2013

NS said that he was personally keen on trying to sort out some of the appalling
traffic by routing it down to Beach Road via relevant signage in order to take
advantage of the lovely beach areas around Branksome Chine, rather than
Sandbanks. At the moment the majority of visitors are unaware of these other
areas.

MH reported that she Chairs a quarterly meeting with Sandbanks Assn. and
Transportation Officers, and it is proposed that this summer there will be two
‘variable messaging systems’; one on Wessex Way and one for traffic arriving in Poole via the Civic Centre, These will indicate if the Sandbanks car parking is full and detailing where there is alternative parking, and this will hopefully alleviate the problems of traffic in Sandbanks.

JS referred to the following extract from 9.4 of the Council Budget Monitoring report (1 April – 31 January 2013) will may be of interest to members…

Environmental Areas
(£154,000) Pumping Stations

Work on the Canford Cliffs Chine and Crematorium pumping stations is underway and is expected to be completed by end of March. The Flaghead Chine and Branksome Dene Chine stations have however proved more complex and work has been slightly delayed into April and May. The budget has been reprofiled accordingly.

Proposed SSE Sub-station in Links Road: JS reported that, earlier this month, the Council’s Estates Department informed Cllr Ron Parker that there were no objections to the disposal notice and SSE has been invited to instruct its solicitors to contact the Councils with a view to progressing the lease of the site.

Gypsy & Traveller Encampments: This was due to be discussed at the following day’s Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting.
Terry Stewart had written to Martyn Underhill, the Police & Crime Commissioner expressing concern that the Police were not in attendance at the first meeting of the
Dorset-wide Traveller Protocol Working Party on 5 February 2013.
NS said that he thought that the police have not been as fully engaged as hoped
and the new Police & Crime Commissioner is going to be invited to take a more
active part.

Membership recruitment drive: JS thanked all those who have helped with this
initiative to date.
Arrangements are, more or less, in place for the Association’s Spring 2013
magazines to be delivered to the Royal Mail’s Distribution Centre in Swindon
around 21 March 2013 for distribution to all residential addresses in BH13.
It will still be necessary for the magazines to be hand-delivered to the 150 or so members living in BH14 and Estate Agents.

Waste collection: JS said that this would be included as an item at the
Association’s AGM Chairman’s Note: On reflection, I feel that this might make the meeting over-long as those attending will wish to get home to their lunch. I have therefore asked the appropriate Committee Clerk for Poole’s wheely bin collection to be added to the Agenda for the next Canford Cliffs & Penn Hill Area Committee meeting on 17 April 2013 which attracts a slightly larger number than our monthly meetings. Particularly as Cllr Mrs Le Poidevin, Branksome West Ward has expressed an interest in this subject too.

3 NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT -
JS reported
18A St Clair Road (Demolish existing building and erect 1 No 4 bed detached house with integral garage – Revised scheme) – Application to be determined by Planning Committee at its meeting on 21 March 2013., 7 Wilderton Road
(a) Demolition of the existing block of 6 flats and the construction of a new block of 7 flats with basement car parking, accessed from Balcombe Road) – Application registered on 29/10/12.
& (b) Demolition of the existing garages and the construction of a detached dwelling house with integral double garage – Application to be determined by Planning Committee at its meeting on 21 March 2013.

4. ACCOUNTS TO DATE – JS reported that the total Association funds as at
28th February 2013 amounted to £38,175.29

5. ANY OTHER BUSINESS
Tesco Express at Sandacres Hotel, Banks Road – NS commented that he has
chaired several meetings between Tesco, residents of Sandacres and the
Sandbanks Association, and he says that Tesco are very keen to work with the
community and accommodate the residents as far as possible. As no planning
permission is required for ‘change of use’. NS intends that he, and several other people will endeavour to get the best deal possible and Tesco appears to be doing what they can.
Dez Dobson said that concern has been expressed over delivery vehicles operating during the night, and the parking problems associated with deliveries.
NS said that he understood that Tesco were trying to have deliveries between 7 and 8am, and that smaller vehicles would be used, enabling them to turn around in the site. MH said that she had had a meeting with a marketing executive for the South West of Tesco and the question of a Café was discussed. But as the residents felt that this was inappropriate Tesco dropped this idea.
MH went on to say that one area of concern was the purchase of alcohol by underage customers. Tesco have given a pledge to work with the Police on this and also the store in Branksome has Community Liaison Personnel who would be happy to get involved. JS said that he would provide Dez Dobson with the contact details, and also the contact details of John Newton of the Sandbanks Association.

Date of next Meeting: The next meeting will be AGM on Saturday 27th April 2013 at Canford Cliffs Village Hall at 10.30am

Council Budget 2012/13 & Council”s Budget Monitoring report: William Mutlow
said the he had had difficulty accessing the BoP website but the Council Budget
Monitoring report (1 April – 31 December 2012) to be presented at Tuesday”s
(12/02/13) Cabinet meeting is predicting a £1.036m) surplus for the current
financial year.
The Cabinet are expected to propose a 1.95% increase in Council Tax, thus

Localism Act/Community Engagement: JS understands that Poole”s Chief
Executive, John McBride will be speaking on “Localism” at the Society of Poole Men
meeting at the Sandbanks Hotel on 19 February 2013.
Chairman”s note: There is an admission charge of £2.50.

Offshore Wind Farm – Roy Pointer reported the had visited the Navitas exhibition
at the RNLI Lifeboat College earlier in the day and it seems that a quite a number
of residents at visited this too. This included William Mutlow.
The recent slight modification to the plans by the developer do not make much
difference to the visual impact. A formal planning application is expected to be
made around this time, next year.
A Steering Group, to be known as the Poole, Christchurch & Bournemouth
Association, has been formed with representatives from each of the four main
areas (Purbeck, Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch), together with a deputy
each in the case of Poole and Christchurch). A further meeting has been fixed for 7
March 2013,

Road Safety concerns Lindsay Road/St Aldhelm’s Road Junction & Lower
end of Wilderton Road
: JS reported that he had been contacted by John Newton
of the Sandbanks Association which had discussed the possibility of introducing a
20 mph speed limit in place of the 30 mph. Recent government noises have
suggested that they are looking at this, and the web is full of successful
introductions to urban areas of a 20 mph limit.
It has been suggested that Mr Newton might co ordinate a meeting of the local
Associations, as it is clear that the Council is more likely to favour a combined
agreed approach rather than a series of piecemeal applications. The SA has
regular meetings with Transportation where we have discussed this on a number of
occasions.
An inaugural meeting is proposed for Sunday 3rd March at 2.30, but if a weekday
meeting is preferred this would have to be after 16th March.
JS has contacted Paul Turner to see if he will represent the Association on this
Committee.
The proposals for Wilderton Road have been deferred to the next Canford Cliffs &
Penn Hill Area Committee meeting on 17 April 2013.

Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan SPD: the Draft Seafront Beaches Master
Plan SPD is due to be re-considered at the Economy Overview and Scrutiny
Committee meeting on 07/03/13.

an uplift.
WH reported that Stephen Thorne, when chairing the CWG had endorsed this
stating that doing nothing was not an option., and as there was no money in the
Council’s budget, funds had to be sourced elsewhere.
NS pointed out that Sandbanks Beach, which had had a Blue Flag for 25
consecutive years and was a great draw for family holidays.

JS reported that Seven Developments Ltd has lodged an Outline application to
demolish existing bungalow at 89 Banks Road and erect three storey restaurant and bar with basement

7.1 of the Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan SPD refers to this area….

“A network of pedestrian paths will be needed across the area, but servicing and
car parking should not be allowed to penetrate the site further than necessary. In
broad terms, the density and intensity of buildings and activities will rise across the
site from the north-east to south-west reaching a climax opposite the existing shops
and restaurants. Here an extended commercial offer (e.g., bars, leisureshops,
objects d’Art) can act as ‘the centre of Sandbanks Village’, as well as picking up on
passing trade, with a retained Scots Pine as the focus of an intimate and informal
public space.
Close to this hub, but overlooking the beach, a Dune Hotel nestled within the
landscape would offer a distinctly Sandbanks version of a restaurant-with-rooms.
Adjoining the hotel, and potentially operated as part of it or with access to its
facilities, are two or three private houses or large suites. These are replicated on
the north-eastern boundary and serve the same function of softening the
architectural treatment of these online casinos flanks, as well as providing natural surveillance.”

Proposed SSE Sub-station in Links Road: JS reported that there had, at last,
been some progress. A Notice of proposal to dispose of land by way of a 99 year
lease was advertised in Daily Echo dated 01/02/03 with representations to be
lodged by 27/01/13.

Gypsy & Traveller Encampments: No new developments.

Membership recruitment drive: JS reported that the contract to use Royal Mail’s
‘Door to door’ service to distribute the Association’s Spring 2013 magazine to every
residential address in BH13, some 4,600 homes, had been signed.
As a result, it is necessary to work to a tight deadline and copy must be with the
Printers by 1st March and for the magazines to be delivered to the Royal Mail’s
Swindon Distribution Centre by Thursday 21st March 2013.
Copy for the magazine must be sent to John Gunton by the middle of this month.

Waste collection: JS to fix date(s) for Cllr Dion and an officer of her choice to
explain the financial/operational challenges they face, what options they have tried
and success achieved.
The Association is also interested in the communications side, inter alia, how
contingencies are detected, assessed as to impact and how these are passed to
and dealt with by operations. What targets are set, measurements made and
performance achieved?
Lastly, the Association would like to talk about how best to get the messages across
to the residents using both traditional and modern media.
It is planned to focus on the Black and Blue bins since that service affects all
residents. It is also one of the highest profile services the Council provides being
measured by both those served and by those passing through the streets of Poole.
The Association would want to make the discussion positive (futures) rather than a
complaints surgery;
Roy Pointer was It was felt that it wasn’t fair to ask Cllr Mrs Dion to attend one of
our monthly meetings, where the attendance is small, so suggested that this might
be included as an item at the Association”s AGM

Chairman”s note: It has occurred to me that we could ask for Poole’s wheely bin
collection to be discussed at the next Canford Cliffs & Penn Hill Area Committee
meeting on 17 April 2013 which attracts a slightly larger number than our monthly
meetings. Particularly as Cllr Mrs Le Poidevin, Branksome West Ward has an
interest in this subject too. In a note to Roy Pointer,
Cllr Mrs Le Poidevin wrote “Our waste disposal teams do an excellent job, but my
concern is with the schedule for blue bin collections over the Christmas and New
Year period. As far as I am concerned any new system should be clear and simple
to understand, cause minimum disruption and treat all residents equally as far as
possible. I would be very happy to meet with your group to hear any ideas you
have to help our thinking when the matter comes to Environment Overview and
Scrutiny committee, probably in May”

end of Wilderton Road:
RP reported that the Borough Council has recommended
that the whole of Wilderton Road becomes a ‘No Waiting’ area. This will cost
approximately £1000 and will be carried out when funds are available. The grass
verge is gradually being reinstated.
RP is making a proposal that the Association donate a modest sum towards the
cost, in order to speed things long. Cllr MH said that she would follow this up by
making certain it is on the Agenda for the next Canford Cliffs & Penn Hill Area
Committee meeting on 13th.February

Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan SPD: There was a consensus amongst
those who had read the plan that many of the proposals included in this were not

the viability of the proposed Dunes Hotel at Sandbanks and the Chines Hotel at
Branksome Dene.

Proposed SSE Sub-station in Links Road: JG is ‘chasing’.

Canford Cliffs & Penn Hill Area Committee meeting – The next meeting is fixed for 13/02/13 at St Luke’s Church Hall.

Waste collection – RP does not feel that the refuse collection is as satisfactory as
the Council would suggest, and over the Christmas and New Year period
collections had not been made. Information on collections was not readily
available, except on the BoP website. RP’s problem was that his black bin waste
collection had not been made on January 4 as scheduled, and he has written to the
Council to lodge a complaint.

Cllr MH explained why there was no waste collection during the Christmas/New
Year holiday. The Council made an agreement with the Unions, whereby the refuse
collectors would forego all bank holidays in the rest of the year in order to have the
Christmas/New Year holiday off. She is waiting for a reply from the officer
responsible as to why several houses had no collection on 4tth January,, as
scheduled.

Navitas Offshore Wind Farm - Roland Cunnell aired his misgivings that, from time
to time, the Association embarked on campaigns where it was unlikely to have any
influence – for example – the proposed Wind Farm. RP assured him that a
concerted plan of action was being worked on. Michael Parkin asked where the
raw data came from – i.e. reliability data, failure data, running costs data,
replacement costs data. RP replied that they have to rely on data published by
HMG. Navitus are not very forthcoming in this respect.

Programme
2012/13 saving
deferred into 2013/14
Detail of alternative saving included in forecast outturn for the year
Street Scene £300,000.00 In-year savings and efficiencies with Environmental & Consumer Protection
services has increased slightly and in now forecast to be £56,000. Work is
ongoing, lead by the Head of E&CPS, to deliver further alternative savings inyear
and the required ongoing streetscene savings from 2013/14 onwards.
Facilities
Management
£197,000.00 Responsibility for this project has recently transferred to Transportation
Services. Due to the other significant in-year pressures within this service area
it is recommended that for 2012/13 only the shortfall is dealt with corporately
providing more time for the unit to develop the necessary detailed savings
plans.
Administration
Accommodation
£250,000.00 Alternative savings and efficiencies have been delivered as part of the Business
Improvement Theme. These savings continue to increase and are now valued at
£662,000. This approach will allow the Head of ICT Services time to deliver the
necessary savings from 2013/14 onwards.
Communications £50,000.00
Total £797,000.00

The Acting Head of Financial Services wrote on 06/12/12 to say that he would be monitoring the Efficiency Review Programme (ERP), as it is currently set out, through the Council budget monitoring process whether that be this year or next.

It his intention to monitor any other savings required to deliver a balanced budget for 2013/14 through next year’s Council budget monitoring in the same way as the (non ERP) savings required to balance the 2012/13 budget are monitored through section 5 of the Cabinet report and Appendix A9.

Localism Act/Community Engagement: No new developments.
Chairman’s Note: A meeting of the Community Engagement Working Party is
being held on Monday (17/12/12). Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Offshore Wind Farm – RP reported that Navitus has published a plan in response to the feed-back they have had so far.

This plan proposes a reduction to the total output of 1100 megawatts rather than 1200 and a slightly smaller area. These changes are insignificant and opposition to the plan will continue. A Steering Group has been formed with representatives from each Residents’ Association in order that ideas and resources can be pooled.

Lindsay Road and St Aldhelm’s Road Junction: Paul Turner said that this junction has been resurfaced. This has the effect of making it much quieter but had also resulted in more speeding.

JS reported that, at the Southern Poole Chairmens’ Liaison Group meeting, there was a suggestion that a speed limit be put in place in Panorama and Banks Road and Whitecliff Road and that three representatives from the relevant areas get together to discuss this. JS suggested that Paul Turner might like to represents the Association. Paul Turner pointed out that primary routes are not entirely suitable for a speed limit.

Cllr NS reported that speeding on Lindsay Road is now one of the top priorities of
the Parkstone, Penn Hill & Canford Cliffs Safer Neighbourhood Team
Chairman’s note: See extract below from

1 – Speeding
During a recent public meeting hosted by the Parkstone SNT a number of local
residents expressed their concern about speeding motor vehicles. It was noted that
often the Camera Safety Team vehicles gravitate towards main roads and often
smaller residential roads are not patrolled as they may not be suitable. Recognising
the public concern, the Parkstone SNT adopted speeding as a community priority.
SNT officers have been trained to use mobile speed reading equipment. They will
be deployed to areas where concern is highest including roads such as Lindsay
Road, Blake Dene Road, North Road and Lilliput Roads. Speed enforcement and
education will take place raise awareness and promote safer driving – especially
during the cold and dark winter months.
In addition, SNT panel member will work in conjunction with the Dorset Camera Safety Team to increase the number of suitable locations to deploy additional resources. The SNT will also work with the media department to highlight the issue of residential speeding to the wider local community

Draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan SPD: This was considered by Members at the Economy Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting on 20/11/12. Cllr Brian Clements, Chairman of the Committee, subsequently wrote to me on 27/11/12…
“ I think we were all agreed about the other concern of needing a more digestible document to attract the interest of a wider public to the more detailed suggestions. The draft minute currently reads
“RECOMMENDATION
That the draft Seafront Beaches Master Plan Supplementary Planning
Document SPD be revised, taking into account the views expressed by the
Committee and the re-worked version, together with a separate explanatory
Summary leaflet, be presented at a future Meeting prior to consideration of
the recommendation to Cabinet for the commencement of a public
consultation.”

Cllr NS said that he was disappointed that no members of the public were present
at this meeting and the Consultants who had prepared the Plan had failed to
understand the need to present this in a ‘user friendly’ format.
