Queen's Park Ward Area Neighbourhood Plan

Application for Designation of Neighbourhood Plan Area and Neighbourhood Forum

Bournemouth Borough Council has received an application by the community to designate Queen's Park Ward Area Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Plan Area.

The proposed Neighbourhood Plan Area is largely based on the Queen's Park Ward boundary. It covers the park itself and the residential areas including a large part of the area known as Charminster. It also covers both sides of Charminster Road including businesses and services on the western site which are outside the Ward.

The Neighbourhood Forum is a group of people who live and work in the area which has been set up by the community specifically to produce a Neighbourhood Plan. It is in addition to existing forums and residents' groups that exist in the area.

If approved this decision will enable the local community to prepare a neighbourhood plan for their area in accordance with the Localism Act 2011.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It is different from other planning documents because it is prepared by the local community. Once it has been completed through a statutory process and adopted by the Council, the policies in the plan will be used, alongside the Council's planning policy documents, to make decisions on planning applications in the area.
