A cleaner, greener, safer panel to be created to bring back pride to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

Following on from the successful launch of the Cleaner, Greener, Safer campaign, BCP Council is now looking to set up a panel of stakeholders who can continue to drive this campaign forward and really bring back a sense of pride across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

The Cleaner, Greener, Safer campaign focuses on the issues that really matter to residents across the three towns. Successful initiatives already undertaken include improved street cleaning, investment in additional CSAS officers to deal with anti-social behaviour, and a commitment to plant over 10,000 trees in 2021.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Drew Mellor commented:

“We really want our residents to feel proud to live in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

“The launch of the Cleaner, Greener, Safer campaign is a great starting point, but we know there is still a lot of work to do. This is a key focus for us, and I have asked for this panel to be set up to ensure we continue to make this a priority until our residents can really see a notable difference.

“Over the next few weeks, we will be inviting a number of stakeholders to join our panel to start discussions that will explore views on the priorities for investment in our public places, look at how to maximise the impact of our collective resources and how to harness the contributions that many other organisations and residents are keen to make.”

“We are committed to our vibrant communities with outstanding quality of life where everyone plays an active role and we’re keen to work on this to make the conurbation cleaner, greener and safer for all our residents, as well as the influx of visitors that will be holidaying in our beautiful coastal towns over the next few months.”
