New names for local Green Parties

30 October 2019

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Green Party (BCPGP) was officially launched on 30th October 2019 and covers the five Parliamentary constituencies of Bournemouth East, Bournemouth West, Christchurch, Poole, and Mid Dorset & North Poole.   This brings the party in line with the new Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council formed earlier this year.

The former name of the party was South East Dorset Green Party and included areas of the South Dorset constituency that sat within the former district of Purbeck, and part of the North Dorset constituency that sat within the former district of East Dorset.   These areas are now part of the Dorset Green Party, which covers all areas of Dorset not included in the BCP conurbation.

This follows consultation with the other local Green Parties in Dorset (South and West Dorset GP and North Dorset GP), and we will continue to work closely with them.

Full information about the changes can be seen in our earlier news item here.
