Welcome to our community consultation website where you can find out more about our emerging proposals for the redevelopment of the Thistle Hotel site, which we are calling Fishermans Dock.
These are undoubtedly challenging times. While we cannot meet face-to-face to discuss our plans, we still want to take every opportunity to find out what you think. Our ‘virtual exhibition’ is available to view or download below – it sets out our proposals in detail – and our architect has recorded a video (also below) in which he explains his approach to the design.
Please take your time to review the material, then click on Have Your Say and leave your feedback. You can also email us at [email protected]
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)
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
