CANFORD HEATH is an extensive area of medium-density housing estates on the northern edge of Poole.
Most of the housing is in the form of estates dating from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, and mostly privately owned, with small areas of Council built properties.
The south-west part of the ward comprises an industrial estate (Nuffield Industrial Estate), with an adjacent business park (Newfields) and Superstore. To the north, housing backs onto Canford Heath – an extensive area of open heathland designated as Green Belt and having a number of public footpaths and riding trails.
Canford Heath has two wards on the Borough of Poole (East and West) with electorates of 5,399 (EAST) and 5,228 (WEST). It has a supermarket and neighbourhood shops (Culliford Crescent, Adastral Road); two public houses; two churches, three schools, a library and a leisure centre.
