Have your say

We recently consulted with you about our plans for Boscombe and the surrounding area. We recently held a four- week public consultation on our plans for Boscombe and the surrounding area. Thank you for completing the survey - we are currently evaluating the responses.

The consultation asked for views about the masterplan for Boscombe town centre, which will be delivered in two phases. The first will be led by the Strategic Towns Fund Board making this a project led by the community, for the community. Phase two is a separate piece of work and will be delivered at a later date by the council’s urban regeneration company – FuturePlaces.

The first phase masterplan will include proposals to revitalise the high street, providing green spaces and wider walkways, a new community centre, five retail kiosks and new housing. The work also includes six transport schemes to improve connectivity between the revitalised town centre, Pokesdown Railway Station and the seafront, creating a connected and vibrant area for residents, businesses and visitors, making journeys in and out of the area easier, safer and more attractive.

You said, we did

We launched a four week survey in 2020 to get your views on the draft vision for the Boscombe Towns Fund Regeneration Area. We asked what was important to you and what your priorities were for the area. 

We had 547 responses to the survey. Take a look at the consultation report to see the results and findings. 

You told us that you would like to see more green spaces, more family and affordable homes, a new community hub and improvements to cycle and pedestrian access.

We have listened to your views and are making exciting plans for a new neighbourhood in the heart of Boscombe and improved transport links. But we want to get this right and would like you to help shape the plans that we take forward.
