Benellen Avenue - Glenferness Avenue

Bournemouth town centre to/from Ferndown

Public consultation on a proposed 20mph zone in the Benellen Avenue area runs until 23.59 on Friday 6 May 2022. We welcome your feedback via our online engagement platform.

A previous public consultation on this route was undertaken 24 February to 31 March 2021, with proposals including the introduction of new planting on Leven Avenue which would have resulted in no direct vehicle access between Glenferness Avenue and Branksome Wood Road. 

A report summarising the results of consultation has been published here in addition to our responses to issues raised here. View the original design here.

In light of feedback received, and updated traffic and cycle count data collected in the area, the closure on Leven Avenue to motor vehicles is no longer proposed. Instead, we are now proposing an alternative set of proposals for this quiet route which are designed to increase safety and improve the area for pedestrians and cyclists, by encouraging lower vehicle speeds and discouraging through traffic. The new proposed design is here.
