The land which covers 40 acres, and is the largest brownfield regeneration site in the south west, has been purchased by BCP Council following a successful £5 million Local Growth Fund investment from Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Cllr Mark Howell, portfolio holder for Regeneration, Culture and Economy, said, “We can now proceed in making a significant investment in a new community development which is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable. This will contribute to the revitalisation of Poole town centre and Hamworthy’s local centre, as well as strengthen Poole’s tourism offer.”
