Our vision for a better local economy
To support our local economy we will:
- Engage local residents and businesses in developing a retail regeneration strategy to breath new life into the town centres of both Poole and Bournemouth, as well as our smaller district shopping areas.
- Engage local residents and businesses in producing a sustainable development strategy that increases economic activity in Christchurch whilst preserving the unique character of its town centre and surroundings.
- Support local businesses to develop employment opportunities in a bid to end the scandal of poverty in our communities.
- Work in a partnership with the operators of Bournemouth Airport and the Port of Poole to secure a sustainable increase in the levels of commercial activity and to enhance the conurbation's trade links with the rest of Europe and the wider world.
