Bournemouth, Christchurch and East Dorset Joint Retail and Leisure Study 2017

Read the 2017 Retail and Leisure Study reports

The Bournemouth, Christchurch and East Dorset Joint Retail Study has been prepared by Lichfields on behalf of Bournemouth Borough Council and Christchurch and East Dorset Councils. This study completely supersedes the GVA Bournemouth Borough Council Retail and Leisure Capacity Study Update 2011.

The Joint Retail and Leisure Study is split into two volumes:-

  • Volume 1 Report which summarises the relevant policy context, describes the shopping hierarchy and provides a needs assessment for retail and other main town centre uses;
  • Volume 2 Report which relates specifically to Bournemouth Borough Council. This volume assesses the main centres in the Borough and sets out recommendations and conclusions. Health checks of each defined centre are also included in this volume. 

Volumes 1 and 2 should be read alongside each other.
