We are MHA Burleigh Poole (Propco) Limited, a part of the MHA London Group.
We anticipate a range of uses appropriate to the location, which could include food and beverage, leisure, retail outlets. We are also exploring the potential for a community hub with a creative or cultural focus.
We submitted our application to BCP Council in October 2020.
The Local Plan states that the Council expects to deliver 710 new homes each year from 2018 to 2023 to ensure needs are met. That Plan was agreed locally by the then Poole Council and was reviewed by the national Planning Inspectorate and found to be sound.
This site is allocated in the Local Plan for a mixed-use development, including approximately 180 new homes. It will therefore play a crucial role in helping to deliver the numbers of new homes that are needed. In fact, we believe we can make best use of what is a brownfield site in the town centre by providing more homes, and we are therefore proposing 228 apartments.
