This SPD supports all of the Council’s top five priorities and particularly protecting and enhancing the built environment. In addition, it supports the Poole Core Strategy’s main objectives and key outcomes and the Site Specific Allocations and Development Management Policies DPD.
The SPD reflects current Council values to work in a joined-up way with communities, partners and other service units. The SPD establishes a coordinated approach, across departments within the council, to deliver projects and work in partnership on a programme of improvements to enable resources to be used more efficiently and reducing duplication and overlap.
The consultation on the draft SPD ran from 19 December 2010 to 13 February 2011 with the responses received informing the final SPD which was adopted in July 2012.
