Poole Bus Station Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) Consultation

Consultation has concluded

In 2019, Dorset Police and local bus companies approached Borough of Poole seeking assistance with reducing the level of anti-social behaviour (ASB) affecting the bus station by the Dolphin Centre in Poole town centre. Part of the Strategy for reducing ASB was to target the alleys connecting the bus station with the Dolphin multi-storey car park (identified below). It was considered by Borough of Poole, now BCP Council, that the closure of these two alleys could reduce ASB but might also lead to accessibility problems.

This consultation seeks views from BCP residents, businesses/organisations and other affected individuals, on whether the gating of the alleys would, on balance, be beneficial for the users of the bus station if ASB were reduced without unfairly affecting access needs.

Please read the Summary Document before responding to the survey. You are also invited to submit any ideas you have on the proposal and for reducing ASB in the area below on our Ideas Board.

Printable versions of the documents can be found on the right hand side of this page and hard copies can be collected from Poole Library or on request to the email address below.

The consultation will close at midnight on the 5 September 2021.

If you have any questions or require a large print copy of the survey or alternative language please email rightsofway@bcpcouncil.gov.uk giving your name, address and telephone number.

We value your participation.
