Welcome to Poole Quays Forum
Poole Quays Forum was formally adopted by the Borough of Poole in July 2013. The Forum has developed a neighbourhood plan that truly represents the neighbourhood and their varying interests.
The plan has been adopted by the Borough of Poole and is now used to guide decisions in planning applications.
It is an opportunity for interested parties to share ideas and work together to improve the social, economic and environmental well being of the area.
The Forum is made up of people who live or work in the Poole Town, Quay and Hamworthy East area. We have over 500 members.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A neighbourhood development plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. In most cases we expect this will mean that neighbourhood plans will have to take into account the local council’s assessment of housing and other development needs in the area.
