Help us shape our Community Engagement and Consultation Strategy

Ensuring that everybody in our diverse communities has the opportunity to get involved and help shape and influence council services in their local area is a priority for BCP Council.  

We’d really like your views on draft Community Engagement and Consultation principles we have put together to show how we plan to engage and consult with our communities.

We’d also like to find out how you currently get involved with BCP Council and what would encourage you to have your say. This is so we can offer a range of ways for you to get involved.

We also ask about your local area identity, what existing local groups you’re aware of and what could work better, so we can consider what arrangements may be needed across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

You can take part in the consultation online.  
Once we have heard your views through the consultation, we will draft the Community Engagement and Consultation Strategy to reflect this, so your views will make a difference.  The Strategy will be presented to Cabinet in July.

The Consultation closes on Sunday 12 April 2020.
