Highcliffe’s coast path could be lined by mixed design overnight huts

A petition objecting to the building of 12 large overnight beach retreats on Highcliffe cliffs has been delivered to the Chrictchurch Civic Offices in Bridge Street.

The objections presented on Tuesday morning were gathered by the Friends of Highcliffe Beaches and Cliffs.

Meanwhile Christchurch MP Chris Chope has agreed with the protesters’ view that the huts require planning permission.

Christchurch Council decided to go ahead with building concrete rafts for the beach huts without public consultation.

It is understood that councillors approved the hut designs last week during a closed meeting at the Bridge Street offices. The result will be revealed on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces TV programme in the autumn.

The huts are planned for the cliff between Highcliffe Castle and Chewton Bunny.
