Welcome

CGI of Fisherman’s Dock
Welcome to our project website where you can find out more about our proposals for the redevelopment of the Thistle Hotel site, which we are calling Fishermans Dock.
We undertook extensive public consultation over the summer, before submitting final plans to BCP Council in October 2020. We hosted a ‘virtual exhibition’ which is available to view or download below – it set out our proposals in detail – and our architect recorded a video (also below) in which he sets out his approach to the design. We are grateful for all the feedback received which has helped to inform our planning application. You can view our application on the BCP Council website by clicking here and using the reference APP/20/01163/F.
We are confident that our proposals will transform the eastern end of The Quay, revitalising what is now an underutilised site in the town centre, allocated for redevelopment, and responding positively to tourism demand in Poole. We will create a prime destination for residents and visitors, and many new jobs in the process. We are also exploring the potential for a specific community use on site with a creative and cultural focus. A public competition will be launched for creative ways of incorporating the existing pumping station into public art within the proposed development. (If you would be keen to get involved with this competition, let us know)
