Our Streets & Spaces Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) - Part 1, The Strategy (17 July 2012)  

Our Streets & Spaces SPD Cover


Our Streets and Spaces is a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and forms part of Poole’s Local Planning Framework. The SPD sets out five guiding principles to inform and guide public space improvements in Poole. The overall aim is to create an environment that has better legibility, is safer and healthier to move about it in, is vibrant; functions well for all users and is greener and more sustainable in our changing climate. It is particularly important for strategic locations in the areas which will experience the greatest changes including the Regeneration Area and Town Centre, as well as major Local Centres.

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.
