Our Streets and Spaces Supplementary Planning Document

19 Dec 11- 13 Feb 12

Our Streets and Spaces is a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and forms part of Poole's Local Development Framework. The SPD sets out a framework of five guiding aims 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 emerging 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.

Comments on the consultation helped to inform the final stage of the document.  Comments were received via Poole's Planning Portal, emailing or writing to Planning and Regeneration Services.
