Boscombe and Pokesdown Neighbourhood Plan Referendum – 31st October

by phildunn on 30 October, 2019

Local referendum tomorrow.

In Boscombe and Pokesdown tomorrow a local referendum is being held on the following question;-

“Do you want BCP Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Boscombe & Pokesdown to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

I will be voting YES in this referendum as I believe it is essential for communities to have a real say in the planning decisions that directly affect them.

A considerable amount of work has gone into drawing up the Boscombe and Pokesdown Neighbourhood Plan. This work has been done over the last two to three years on a non-partisan basis by a committed group of local residents and business people.

If you’d like to find out more about the Neighbourhood Plan before casting your vote tomorrow, please visit their website at

If you are registered to vote you can do so at the following polling stations;-

Shelley Theatre, Shelley Park, Beechwood Avenue, Bournemouth, BH5 1LX
