Your Borough Of Poole

Planning Applications



 As part of a National initiative by the Planning Advisory Service which is aimed at improving planning services, the Borough of Poole is inviting Stakeholders (including Agents, Applicants, and Neighbours)  to take part in an on-line survey relating to the service they have received on individual Planning and Tree-work Applications. 

 If you have submitted an application for planning or tree-works, or have commented on an application that we have received and have let us have an email contact we will contact you at the end of the decision process for that application for your views. 

  •  Surveys are emailed and will only take a few minutes to complete.     

  •  All responses will be treated as strictly confidential and held in a secure database and results will NOT allow you to be identified individually.         

  •  No personal data will be passed on to any third party.    

 If you have any questions about the survey , please email planningsurvey@poole.gov.uk
