A total of 161 new homes will be available to rent in Poole in the future.
As part of BCP Council’s plans to reinvigorate the area, a ground-breaking ceremony has taken place at Carter’s Quay.
Cllr Philip Broadhead, deputy leader and portfolio holder for Development, Growth and Regeneration and Sarah Longthorpe, director of Regeneration, BCP Council, together with dignitaries from BCP Council, ward councillors for Hamworthy and senior staff at Inland Homes, were in attendance to celebrate kick-starting the rejuvenation of the area.
Cllr Broadhead said: “Regenerating Poole at pace is one of the top headlines in our Big Plan, and here we are getting started on site with exactly the sort of vibrant scheme that this waterfront deserves.
“We said we would deliver much needed homes for the community and ensure they contribute towards our wider promise to revitalize Poole. The opportunity to provide a mixed-use scheme of new homes and hospitality and retail opportunities really hits the bullseye, as we help create one of the best coastal places in the world in which to live, work, invest and play.
“I look forward to spotting the crane in the sky when I’m in the town over the next few months and seeing this priority area for our regeneration plans progress.”
BCP FuturePlaces, the council’s newly-created Urban Regeneration Company has been working closely with specialist house builder and brownfield developer, Inland Homes.
Carters Quay is anticipated to complete by the end of 2024 and will include 161 one-, two- and three-bed apartments.
The homes will be available for private rent through the council’s wholly owned company Seascape Homes and Property Limited.
