The strategy will help deliver the council’s strategic aims and objectives including the ‘Dynamic Places’, ‘Connected Communities’ and ‘Sustainable Environment’ objectives in the Corporate Strategy. It will also be part of the BCP Futures brand and help deliver the ‘Iconic’, ‘Rejuvenate Poole’, ‘Infrastructure’ and ‘Act at Scale’ projects of the Big Plan.
