Carter Quay Marks Key Milestone In Poole Rejuvenation
A ceremony at Carter's Quay, in Poole, which is a development of 161 new build to rent homes in place took place with the ground-breaking moment. This marks the start of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council's plans to redevelop the local area.
Cllr Philip Broadhead, Deputy Leader BCP Council and Portfolio Holder for Development, Growth and Regeneration and Sarah Longthorpe, Director or 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.
The site is between the bridges on the waterfront at Hamworthy, the Council's acquisition of the Carters Quay scheme forms part of the BCP's wider regeneration programme for homes and businesses across the area. Cllr Philip Broadhead, Deputy Leader BCP Council and Portfolio Holder for Development, Growth and Regeneration comments: “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, on the design and place making aspects and other aspects on the development. Carters Quay is hopefully to be completed at the end of 2024 and will include 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. The homes will be available for private rent through the Council's wholly owned company Seascape Homes and Property Limited.
