Have Your Say On Transport Improvements Across Poole's Town Centre

Local people have until 6 December to give their views and help shape transport improvements across Poole's Town Centre.

Borough of Poole continues to have ambitious plans for regeneration across the town centre. In order to update the planning and design guidance for the area, the council is inviting everyone to have their say on how access into and movement around the town centre should work in the future, and to put forward any ideas they may have for improvements.  

People can find out further information and complete an online questionnaire at boroughofpoole.com/centralareaspd. Consultation materials will also be available in the reception area of the council's Planning and Regeneration Services Department at Civic Centre and at all Poole libraries.

Council staff will also be at Hamworthy Library on Friday 15 November 2013 between 1pm and 7pm and Poole Central Library on Saturday 30 November 2013 between 11am and 3pm to answer any questions and to offer help with completing the questionnaire. 

The consultation, which will run for a six-week period, started on Friday 25 October 2013 and will close on Friday 6 December 2013.

The results of the consultation will be used to help shape the options for transport improvements across the town centre. These options will then be tested in a transport model. A further public consultation on the proposals will take place next year and once the preferred approach has been agreed, it will be set out in an updated planning and design guidance for the town centre.

Councillor Mike White, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Inward Investment, Borough of Poole, said: "Staff in our Planning and Transportation departments have worked closely together to develop this consultation. It gives local people the opportunity to give their views on how easy they can get into and around the town centre and how this could contribute to improving Poole as a place to live, work and visit. We would encourage everyone to comment as the feedback we receive will help shape future travel in Poole town centre."
