Newtown & Branksome

Find your neighbourhood

The Newtown and Branksome area is located in the east of Poole and shares boundaries with Alderney, Canford Heath East, Oakdale, Parkstone and Westbourne areas. In the east of the ward are the industrial areas of Mannings Heath Industrial Estate and Newtown Business Park, as well as the Tower Park leisure complex. Ashley Road is the second largest local centre in Poole after the town centre. Ashley Road and the Redlands retail park run along the southern boundary and contain a large amount of large retail outlets with high footfall.

Officers are regularly patrolling this demographically diverse area on foot or by car and cycle and will always be more than happy to assist with any enquiries that you may have.
