BCP Council profile

About BCP Council

BCP Council is responsible for all local government services in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. We provide services to around 400,000 residents from Hamworthy and Broadstone in the west, to Highcliffe in the east - the twelfth largest resident population of any council in England.

This scale means a higher percentage of our budget can be spent on frontline services, and less on management overheads and back-office support. As a new, large council, we have an opportunity to think as one area for business, growth, and the prosperity of all who live here.

Our scale means we can more easily plan for, bid for and win extra funding for things that are important to the people who live and work in BCP, such as housing, roads and schools.

We’re going through a period of great change – reviewing how we deliver services and how we make sure this fantastic area of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole continues to thrive.

"For five days, we would have a meeting first thing in the morning to go through the plan for the day. Then, we would have talks in the morning from conservationists on careers and areas of conservation. We would have breaks and an hour lunch break. In the afternoon, we would have one or two more talks and then meet go into breakout rooms with our groups to discuss and plan our project - which was focused on tackling a conservation problem being faced by Hengistbury Head nature reserve."

"Everyday we listened to speakers who work in various different parts of the conservation sector. They gave a descriptions of their jobs day to day and advice on how to break into the sector ourselves. Many of the talks involved small group discussions and Q&A's as well. We also worked on our group projects throughout the week" Read full review
