The Whitecliff and Baiter Park areas of Poole are very popular with local people and now BCP Council is hoping to improve access to those areas – and they would like to know what you think.
Focusing on a key connecting route between Poole Town Centre and neighbouring residential areas, options which are being considered include widening the existing Whitecliff Recreation Ground waterside path. This would enable the creation of a safer protected cycle way and pedestrian footpath, which could then be complemented by two north/south links connecting to Whitecliff Road.
Residents can provide early feedback on the proposed options for this scheme by completing a short online survey. They may also leave comments online using an interactive map and submit feedback via email, or by writing to a dedicated address.
Following a four-week period of engagement, all feedback will be considered and changes made to the initial proposals. Once completed, BCP Council will undertake a formal consultation process with a view to giving people a further opportunity to share their views prior to delivering the improvements later in the year.
Cllr Mike Greene, portfolio holder for transport and sustainability at BCP Council said, “We now have an excellent opportunity to improve safety and encourage more people to choose greener travel options by providing a new protected route through this part of Poole. We are very much keen to engage with the community as early as possible on these proposals and the options that are being considered.
“This extensive process of engagement will provide an ample opportunity for all those who enjoy, spend time, or travel through the area for work and leisure, to share their ideas and shape the final plans before they are implemented.’’
