Insights into residents' opinions and preferences are invaluable when planning and setting priorities. As we work with Bournemouth, Christchurch and Dorset councils to plan for the new local authority in 2019, we will be able to use the information gained from this survey, about the the things that are important to Poole residents, to help inform the new council's priorities as well as service delivery, design and improvement.
We invited 6,000 residents to take part in the Shaping Poole survey to give their views on life in Poole and a range of local services, including refuse collections, public transport and leisure facilities. The survey was conducted between September and October 2017.
Over 2,300 residents responded to the survey, providing their views on the following topics:
- the local area and council services and their community
- what is important in making somewhere a good place to live and what needs improving in the local area
- crime and anti-social behaviour
- where they hear about Council news and information
- health and social wellbeing
