The Feria Urbanism team was appointed by Meyrick Estate Management Ltd to support their work on housing allocations in Burton, near Christchurch, Dorset.

We worked with Lisa Jackson (Planning), Alan Baxter Associates (Transport) and James Blake Associates (Landscape) to understand more about the concerns and aspirations of the local community as part of the site allocations process being undertaken by Christchurch Borough Council.

We ran two public consultation events to find out more about local views and opinions on the allocations work.


Our team used its extensive experience in stakeholder engagement to good effect to uncover the issues of concerns to local residents. The workshop results helped to inform a site development brief and to strengthen the evidence base for the allocations work.


The Feria Urbanism team has produced other strategy reports for Bournemouth, Weymouth, Halesworth, Liverpool, Bexleyheath and Preston. If you wish to know more about this other work, please get in touch.
