About Us

The CCA is a Christchurch residents association for the town of Christchurch in Dorset.

The CCA was formed in 1944 by the residents of Christchurch, for local residents and businesses. Throughout this time the CCA has been at the forefront of many campaigns.

When it began, it was the only residents association in Christchurch, but as the borough grew and the population increased, other residents associations were formed, representing other parts of the borough. However, we remain for the benefit of all residents and businesses throughout the Christchurch area.

The CCA has always been and will continue to remain non-political. We are here for the residents to air their views on large and small matters.

We have a working relationship with Christchurch Borough Council who appreciate our input.

The CCA is led by the President, Chairman, Vice Chairman and Committee who meet regularly to discuss and take forward residents views and matters concerning the borough.


Membership costs just £2 per household annually. If you are interested in joining, then please use the contact form, or speak to one of our committee members at our next meeting, where you are assured of a warm welcome.

Public Information Meeting

Dear Members

attach a leaflet giving you all the necessary details regarding the public meeting regarding Town and Parish Councillors.

This is a non-political meeting. Politics do not come into being a Parish or Town Councillor, it is all about supporting the local community.

You can come to hear what is involved, even if you don’t think the role of a Town or Parish Councillor is for you, you may feel differently once you hear more.

Existing Parish Councillors and representatives from the Dorset Association of Parish and Town Councillors will be on hand for a Q&A session, they will explain how it all works and how you can support your local community and Christchurch.

Avril Coulton
