Local community invited to shape the future for Wessex Fields

Posted on Thursday 17th October 2019

Residents, community groups and business representatives are invited to help shape the future of Wessex Fields at an engagement event next month (19 November).

Following the decision by BCP Council’s Cabinet to build part of the road from the A338 up to the Wessex Fields development site boundary line, work is now underway to shape the future plans for the Wessex Fields site.  

Those interested in shaping the future development of Wessex Fields are invited to attend the engagement day on 19 November at The Bridge, Littledown where the future of the site will be discussed.

This event will be an opportunity to hear from the Leader of the Council and share ideas on what the site should be developed in the future.   Any ideas put forward will need to be financially viable and environmentally appropriate.

The engagement day will be split into three 1 ½ hour sessions and those who wish to attend must register at bcpcouncil.gov.uk/wessexfields in advance choosing their preferred time slot. 

Councillor Vikki Slade, Leader of BCP Council, said; “The development of the Wessex Fields site will be going ahead and it’s important for the local community to have an opportunity to get involved in shaping plans for the area.

Within these plans, it is vital that the future infrastructure development supports clean economic growth, helps to improve health and wellbeing and makes the area a better place to live, work and visit.

I would encourage anyone interested in the future of Wessex Fields to register and attend the event so that they can tell us what is important to them when it comes to the future of this site.”

Ideas can also be submitted after the event via the dedicated webpage and presentations from the day will be available to view online. To register for the event, please visit: bcpcouncil.gov.uk/wessexfields
