Local Plan – Issues and Options Consultation

Later this year, we will be consulting on a draft Local Plan for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. Before we reach that stage, we want your views in this Issues and Options Consultation. We have produced this Issues and Options document for consultation, but this is not a draft of the Local Plan. We have included all sites which have been promoted to us, so you have the opportunity to tell us what you views on all sites which have been proposed. This does not mean that all of these sites will be included in the draft Local Plan.

Our new Local Plan for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole will set out a strategy for how much, where and what type of development will take place across the BCP area up to 2038. It will provide detailed planning policies and site allocations to guide change and new development. Before we prepare a draft of our new Local Plan, we would like your views about our recommendations and options.

The Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation Document explains the key issues for the Local Plan to address, and either recommends the approach we think we should take or sets out options to address the issue. Where we think there is only one reasonable thing to do, we make a recommendation and provide a reason why.

The deadline for responses to the consultation is 7 March 2022 .

Please note the best way of viewing all the information is from a desktop or laptop computer.
