Opened in 1890, Poole Park is the most popular public open space in Poole
Following an initial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and two years of project development, at the end of February 2017 Borough of Poole submitted a grant request for the ‘Delivery Phase’ of the Poole Park Life project.
If the submission is successful the HLF will provide £2.7m to help improve Poole Park and engage park users and local communities, as part of a £3.5m project.
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:
A 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!
