We are a volunteer group of residents who want to make Poole's streets more people-friendly. By this we mean that we want our public spaces to be safer and more sociable places to enjoy, to travel through, and to linger in.
Poole is already a lovely place to live, but we believe it can be even better, now and for future generations. Every single member of our community deserves to make the most of what Poole has to offer, regardless of age or physical ability, but unfortunately our streets can sometimes restrict people.
Lack of safe crossings, uneven pavements, illegal parking and excess traffic can all be barriers to people being able to freely walk, scoot, wheel or cycle around our town. And did you know that our area has some of the worst air quality in the country, partly due to congestion?
Living Streets is the national charity for everyday walking, and we are embracing this at a local level.
Our ambitions for Poole:
We will work with the community and with the Council towards making these ambitions come to life. If you are interested in finding out more, lending your support or if you have a concern or issue that you'd like us to look into, please get in touch via the links to the right of this text. You can join our mailing list if you want to be informed of any local events or campaigns, and we also have a Facebook page and Twitter account if you would like to say hello on social media.
