From visitor numbers it is clear that people across the country love the area from Poole to Christchurch, and now local people are to have the chance to have their say on the future of the 40-mile coastline.
The Seafront Development Strategy needs to reflect the Council’s objectives to support the natural environment, encourage enterprise and ambition, and reflect local tastes and desires.
Cllr Mohan Iyengar portfolio holder for Tourism, Leisure and Culture said:
“We’ve drafted a set of aims within the Seafront Strategy and now we’ll invite discussion to agree the way forward. The seafront and its many locations have a special place in the hearts of our residents, so the engagement no doubt will be keen. I’ll welcome everyone’s input so that we protect the right things and provide for the future – but let’s also be bold about what could lift and energise our resort in just the right way.”
This Seafront Strategy updates previous plans to set out ambitions for a world-class seafront, promoting forward investment in the leisure offer across our coastline for the continuing enjoyment of both residents and visitors.
