Local campaigners Henry Castledine and Gary Mitchell have been calling for improvements to the beach and clifftop in West Southbourne.
"We feel that the council has neglected the lighting in the beach area for far too long and it needs improving." Said Henry. "We've carried out an extensive survey in the area and found that many local residents agree with us."
Fellow campaigner, Gary Mitchell added "Like most local people I love the beach but it can be hard to access because parking is so poor in West Southbourne. We'd like local residents to have free access to adequate car parking and it's something we've committed to calling for in the new local authority for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole."
