Bournemouth Town Centre Area Action Plan um area

…sound by Planning Inspector Geoff Salter.

Bournemouth Borough Council has received the Inspector’s report into its Area Action Plan and it has been found sound as a basis for planning the town centre for the next 14 years. The Council now intend to adopt the plan in February or March next year.

This plan affects a number of the key sites around the town centre, including instances where planning is currently being sought. It will be interesting if the Council take the Inspector’s endorsement as a green light to begin applying the new policy immediately before formal adoption (as indeed they did in the end with the Core Strategy).
