c/o Council Civic Centre
Tony Trent has represented this area for many years, having lived in, been educated, has his family home, and raised two sons in the Alderney & Bourne Valley Ward.
He has fought against excessive development in the area, and a major road scheme which would have devastated our remaining heath land.
Tony has championed, amongst many other things, youth and play facilities, safe pedestrian crossings, and the maintenance and improvement of bus services.
He sees the heath land and open spaces like Bourne Valley Park and Branksome Rec. as essential, and has worked with the Police and others to reduce the anti-social behaviour which causes upset to so many.
Tony says "This is the area I've lived in all my life, and I have always sought to protect what is good, and improve what is not so good in our area - with varying degrees of success. I've also supported local community groups, and am particularly proud to have played my part in the campaign to get the new community building on Bourne. Over the last year I have served as Mayor of Poole, and am acutely aware that Poole is struggling with it's identity as part of BCP. We need to look at how me maintain the identity of our three Towns, and the principle areas within them, whilst ensuring that BCP Council, despite not supporting the merger myself, actually works for ALL our residents - including the left behind."
