Druitt Hall Victory For Our Planning Solicitors17th Jul 2013
The name Druitt is incredibly important to the people of Christchurch. It has been inextricably linked with the town for centuries.
Charlotte Druitt’s historic bequest of the Druitt Gardens to the town in the 1900s gave Christchurch one of its most enduring landmarks. Equally loved is the Druitt Hall, which opened in 1953.
So our planning solicitors’ latest victory on behalf the Druitt Hall Association was made all the sweeter by knowing that we had helped to preserve such an important slice of local history.
Christchurch planners granted outline approval for a new Druitt Hall to be built on the existing site – ensuring that local societies will continue to enjoy a community facility there for years to come.
It follows the rejection of the council’s original plan last year to simply demolish the existing hall.
Levels of support for the planned new hall were absolutely overwhelming, said Coles Miller Planning Consultant James Cain.
“There were 730 letters of support. That is unprecedented for a project of this size,” he said.
