TALBOT & BRANKSOME WOODS: Lynda Price – Independent


Lynda  Price Independent Candidate for Talbot & Branksome Woods.

My  aspirations are as follows, for the new BCP Council.
T&BW Ward is a large and diffuse Ward. I have “worked” it for 14 years and can appreciate what residents will expect from me as their Councillor.

The Ward is home to Bournemouth University and the Arts University. Both have ambitious development plans, and there is a proposal for a digital village in the recently approved
Poole Local Plan.

Careful planning to take into account the concerns of adjoining residents is needed, and that is why I shall be seeking a position on the Council’s important Universities Liaison committee involving also the Talbot Village Trust.

Part of the Ward is also a Conservation Area, and I shall continue my efforts to preserve and enhance its character and appearance in the context of planning applications. Other areas of amenity value must also not be neglected!

On the eastern side of the Ward we have social housing, and houses in multiple occupation, and the tenants here also have concerns that must be attended to.

It is great to have the Stokewood Road Leisure Centre in the Ward, and we have over the years given our backing to various opportunities for young people.

Finally, I have always liaised closely with the Police over various issues including crime prevention, the problems created by street begging, and car parking. I shall make a point of continuing this line of communication.
I look forward eagerly to serving you as one of your Councillors on the new BCP Council!

    Dear Mrs. Lynda Price. I read your interests as a Councillor, particularly that you are keen and work closely with the Police department on various issues. Well I too am keen on the services of our Police. Sadly I am not entirely satisfied.
    I have tried to contact Mr. M. Underhill several times, requested a call back but it has all been in vain. Overall, my main issue is that of SPEEDING to and from the East Avenue Roundabout on Wimborne Road. It is my understanding that this area is a 30 mph zone. Yet, motorists especially the Bournemouth Taxi’s blatantly ignore the regulations. This is most often during the evenings and late at night going into the early hours of mornings all week but more so at weekends.
    You will no doubt see the importance of placing deterrents such as Speed Limit signs on the Tarmac to SLOW down, SPEED CAMERA, Electronic speed caution signs.
    During my meeting with Mr. Underhill during the first year of his appointment, he promised me to organise a Speed Survey and /by temporary Speed camera as soon as the same was available after the survey on St Lukes Road.He had also suggested imposing a 20 mph speed limit on this stretch of Wimborne Road between the East Avenue Roundabout and Cemetery Junction.
    In spite of our home having double glazing the zooming noise of the traffic is unbearable.
    The speeding on Wimborne Road must be tackled.
    Further, I understand that the Government has instructed the citizens to ISOLATE under the current COVID 19 circumstances. It is obvious and apparent by the Traffic noise and number of Motorists on the Road that no one is particularly careful and taking heed of the National instructions to Isolate.
    I shall await anxiously for your reply with what you intend to propose and what action you will take to the Speeding on Wimborne Road.
    With regards. Saleem Rangoon. 68 Wimborne Road
