A 2.7m Heritage Lottery funding bid

The bid is in!

Some of the plans and strategies for the future of Poole Park are now available to view & download; these make up a small part of the submission to the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We hope to have a decision from the HLF in August.

At the same time as submitting the bid we made planning applications for the permissions that will be necessary should the bid be successful; on 15th June we learned that the main application (APP/17/00378/F) has been granted!

APP/17/00378/F  Poole Park, Poole Park Road » full details
APP/17/00385/L  Poole Park War Memorials » full details

We now await the HLF grant application decision;  successful outcome will take us into a four-year Delivery Phase (2017-2021).

The story so far …

Thank you to everyone that helped, in whatever way, to get the project to this exciting stage!


Poole Park offers a wealth of opportunity for artists, photographers and potters to portray its many unique features and facilities as they have evolved since the park was created in 1890.
