BCP Green Party has selected Moordown as its first new target ward for the next local elections in May 2023. In May 2019, the Green Party's Kate Salmon (née Bisson) was just 43 votes away from being elected instead of Conservative Councillor Beverley Dunlop. This makes Moordown statistically the most winnable ward in BCP for the Green Party at the next election in May 2023.

The playground at Mallard Road Park in Bournemouth is so old and run down that there are safety concerns for children using it, says local Green Party campaigner Kate Salmon. The park is by Bishop of Winchester Academy, on a through route also very close to Queen’s Park Children’s Centre, Queen’s Park Academy (junior and infants), and the grammar schools. The park also serves residents who live in flats without gardens on the adjacent social housing estate.

Kate Salmon, local parent and Green Party speaker for Moordown, has started a campaign for a new pedestrian crossing on Charminster Road, in the area north of the Moordown-catchment schools and children’s centre on East Way and Malvern Road.

This summer BCP Council’s Conservative Cabinet waved through proposals to spend £90,000 of public money on two new cars for its mayors. This follows £50k spent by the Council preparing a failed bid for Freeport status for Bournemouth & Poole - despite warnings that Freeports benefit only a wealthy few while breeding corruption, tax evasion and criminal activity. In good news, BCP’s climate team is said to be expanding from two staff to eight.
