The deadline for this engagement is Monday 2 January 2023. If you have any questions or need the survey in a different format, please email environment@bcpcouncil.gov.uk or call 01202 123123.

Map 1 - New planting

about 2 months

New planting

Please use the map to tell us where you would like to see new planting in the BCP conurbation. Zoom to the location(s) where you would like to propose some interventions and drop a pin by dragging it over to the relevant area of the map. Please use the comments box to tell us about your proposal.

 Please tell us:

  • What type of planting you have in mind (e.g., street trees, individual trees in parks, orchards, woodland etc) 
  • What benefits the planting would need to provide (e.g., cool temperatures/shade, reduce local flooding, provide protection against noise/pollution from cars, beautify the area etc) 
  • Who, in your opinion, should be involved for the planting to be successful (e.g., a particular local institution – like a school, a community group, a business, a landowner)

In addition to commenting on the map, please also give us your views on the questions in the main online survey.
