Community action and events
Our primary focus is on the Sandbanks peninsula (Shore Road to Haven Ferry). We welcome members wherever they live but only household members i.e. those from families who own or rent a property on the Sandbanks peninsula have voting rights.
Our members care about protecting Sandbanks for everyone, not just a favoured few. These case studies will give you the idea.

When developers filed plans to demolish the Haven Hotel and replace it with a ten storey tower block of flats, we quickly mounted a campaign against the plans
We acted quickly to ensure order and cleanliness was maintained so that everyone can enjoy Sandbanks
We brought local insight to Council planning that helped greatly improve management of the annual Sandfest festival for the benefit of festival-goers and residents alike
