Placeshaping - Improving Poole
Place-shaping is planning terminology for making urban environments pleasant places for people to go about their business. When done well it is a win-win result as slower moving but more constant traffic flows result in less congestion and increased safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
Poole Harbour Marine Centre
We are pleased to say that Poole Harbour Commissioners have rejected the Hamworthy option and have decided instead to seek an expansion of Poole Quay Boat Haven. While Conservative councillors objected to both locations, we met with the Commissioners and urged them to choose Poole Quay. We did this because we feel that the Quay option will help revitalise the High Street, and the Hamworthy option would have been damaging to Hamworthy Park and the harbour. Note: The Conservatives claim in their recent leaflet that their lobbying had resulted in a reduction in berths is incorrect. The figures have not changed since the Commissioners' original proposal.
