Peaceful Poole Park protest against BCP Council’s proposed Whitecliff entrance gate closure
After more than 130 years of Poole Park being open to vehicles, BCP Council wants to permanently close an entrance/exit gate, located in Whitecliff Road and adjacent to Twemlow Avenue, in Poole.
On Saturday, 20th January, 2024, approximately 250 residents staged a protest at the Whitecliff Road gate. Many held banners and placards that criticised BCP Council and the “motives” behind the closure.
BCP Council are holding a public consultation, but this is flawed as it’s possible to ‘have your say’ multiple times. Clearly, this is open to abuse. The consultation runs for four weeks, from Wednesday 17th January 2024, closing at 23:59 on 13th February.
