We are reviewing the Poole Core Strategy (2009), a plan that sets out the strategic vision for the amount and location of new development in the Borough to 2026. Over the past two years we have been gathering evidence to assess how the Core Strategy policies have performed and have sought the views of local organisations and the public on the key issues we should explore. We now seek your views on the issues that we have identified and options for how we accommodate future housing, shopping and employment needs to 2031. We welcome your views upon the following documents:

CIL Review - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule Consultation: 16th February - 31st March 2015
In 2013 we were one of the first local authorities to introduce a CIL Charging Schedule, a tax on development to pay for infrastructure. Alongside the Poole Core Strategy Review we are reviewing our CIL Charging Rates. We commissioned viability work to assess the current market conditions and identify new CIL rates. We are seeking your views on whether these rates are deliverable and will not unduly burden landowners and developers from bringing sites forward.
The consultation on the Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule closes on Tuesday 31st March 2015. Paper copies of the consultation document can be viewed in the Planning Reception at the Civic Centre and at all Poole libraries. For you to get your views to us as quickly and efficiently as possible we would prefer it if comments are submitted online. However, if you prefer you can email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘CIL Review’ inserted into the subject box, or post your comments to: Planning Policy & Implementation, Planning and Regeneration Services including Building Consultancy, Borough of Poole, Civic Centre, Poole BH15 2RU.

The Dorset Heathlands Planning Framework Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The Dorset Heathlands Planning Framework SPD has now been updated to cover the period 2015-2020 to take account of changes in the planning system, most notably the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy and its relationship with s106 agreements. In addition, the arrangements that have been in place since the introduction of the Interim Planning Framework in 2007 have been reviewed and the draft document reflects the new arrangements agreed by the local authorities.
Consultation on the draft SPD commences on Wednesday 7th January and closes on Wednesday 18th February 2015. A hard copy of the public consultation document can be obtained from the Council offices and local libraries of the relevant local authorities i.e. Bournemouth, Christchurch, Dorset, East Dorset, Poole and Purbeck. Alternatively an electronic copy can be downloaded from the consultation page.
Borough of Poole is co-ordinating the consultation arrangements on behalf of the local authorities and any comments on the consultation document should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Dorset Heathland Consultation’ inserted in the subject box, or alternatively in writing to Dorset Heathland Consultation, Planning and Regeneration Services, Borough of Poole, Civic Centre, Poole, BH15 2RU.
