Weekly Planning Notices
The OHSCA planning officer reviews local planning applications in the OHSCA area, including proposed tree works, and informs the OHSCA committee and members about them on a weekly basis. The committee scrutinises these carefully and makes comments where appropriate. Members are encouraged to do the same, either by post or directly through the Canterbury City Council Planning website. Members get a page of information weekly, by email only, with links to the appropriate page on the Council website which details the planning applications. The decisions taken by the Planning Committee are also included and other broader planning issues are addressed.
We send out email announcements about forthcoming OHSCA events, including social activities, and other meetings organised by like-minded groups and organisations in Canterbury relating to transport, planning, environment, local democracy or similar issues.
Local History Booklets
The Local History Group publishes booklets on the history of local families and streets in our area of Canterbury.
