The site of the Holes Bay power station, which closed in 1994, could in the future be used to provide 830 low carbon homes for local people as well as unlocking new employment and commercial opportunities.
BCP Council is working on its vision for the 40-acre site, which is the largest brownfield regeneration area in the South West of England.
Last year, following a successful £5 million Local Growth Fund investment through the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), the land was purchased by BCP Council.
Cllr Philip Broadhead, deputy leader and portfolio holder for Regeneration and Economy said, “Close to Poole’s town centre, our busy commercial port and neighbouring residential areas, Holes Bay is a strategically important area for future regeneration and investment.
“We now want residents to share in this once in a lifetime opportunity and help build our ambitious vision for a world-class, sustainable and economically viable development. Over the next few months will be carrying out some initial engagement activities and generating interest throughout the community. Wider public consultation and events are also planned for later in the year once restrictions permit.”
