A dedicated multi-agency summer response plan put in place to welcome people back safely across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole has stood the test and remains in place as visitors and residents continue to enjoy soaring temperatures.
With more than 300,000 visitors choosing Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole over the Bank Holiday weekend, BCP Council and partners worked around the clock to keep the towns clean and safe.
Over 1,200 people downloaded the BCP Beach Check app over the weekend, making 32,000 overall who are using it to find safer and less congested spots along the seafront.
Councillor Mohan Iyengar, Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Leisure and Culture, BCP Council, said “We have just experienced a great bank holiday weekend. Hotels have been full, restaurants busy and a whole load of other attractions have served customers in the hundreds.
“Credit goes to the officers across the council, police, fire and other authorities who have been on alert.
“Looking forward, we’ve a lot to be positive about this summer. The Festival Coast Live kicks off in June with more than 200 events across our three towns and it culminates in the Air Festival in September – the biggest one we’ll have laid on. It positions us as a fabulous resort in the UK with beaches we’re proud of and hospitality second to none.”
