Have your say on the draft Local Plan consultation

We have published our draft Local Plan, policies maps and supporting evidence including sustainability appraisal and habitats regulations assessment. 

The draft Local Plan provides the strategy for growth over the next 15 years and includes planning policies against which future development will be assessed.

We are inviting representations on the publication draft of the Local Plan and its supporting evidence from Wednesday 20 March 2024 to 1pm on Friday 3 May 2024.

The draft Local Plan is in 3 parts. Part 1 covers the strategy and the policies we will use to determine planning applications. Part 2 provides detailed land use proposals for each of our 33 wards. Part 3 is the appendices.

You can view the Policies Map in two different ways through an interactive map of the whole Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area or as individual ward maps.
