A new Local Plan for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

A plan for Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and you.

Throughout the process of preparing the Local Plan we want to engage with a wide range of local people, businesses and community groups to obtain the widest possible agreement on the development of planning policies and the allocation of sites to meet future identified development needs.

The resulting Plan needs to ensure that the sustainable development of the area can be achieved in a way that maintains and improves the health and well-being of local people and carefully balances the need for new homes, employment opportunities and other supporting development, with the protection of important heathland, harbour and coastal habitats, green spaces and unique heritage assets.

An important starting point for the new Plan is the identification of the issues that it will need to address.

A letter, identifying a number of suggested issues aligned to the key priorities of the BCP Corporate Strategy, forms the basis of a public consultation on the issues the new plan will address.

The consultation, running for a period of six weeks, commences on Monday 7th October and closes on Monday 18th November 2019.

To respond to the consultation, be kept informed of, or be involved with the progress of the new BCP Local Plan, please send your details to us at bcplocalplan@bcpcouncil.gov.uk quoting ‘BCP Local Plan Consultation Database’ in the subject box and we will add your details to our consultation database.
