Our vision for the future

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole is the UK’s newest city region and it’s brimming with prospects, positivity and pride.  

It’s a place where culture and heritage meet innovation and modernity, village meets town, country meets coast, creativity meets digital, businesses flourish and people thrive. 

BCP is the tenth-largest urban local authority in England and our communities are vibrant and diverse, with an outstanding quality of life, where everyone plays an active role – a globally-recognised coastline of opportunity, where people love to live, learn, work, explore, invent, relax and play.

The Vision for our Future and Big Plan will be considered by the council’s overview and scrutiny board on Monday, 1 February, after which Cabinet will discuss the proposal on 10 February, making recommendations for consideration at Full Council on 23 February.
