Poole High Street Heritage Action Zone
The Poole High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) was established in 2020 as a four year project to make the town centre more attractive for residents, businesses and visitors.
This £1.25 million improvement programme was made possible thanks to £625,000 funding from Historic England which was matched with money from the Community Infrastructure Levy to create this project fund.
The money is being used to support various conservation-led regeneration projects that are helping us to reshape and repurpose the High Street and improve its economic performance by attracting more people to experience the rich history of the area, and celebrate the many historic buildings and features that are attractions in their own right.
After a slow start due to the pandemic and other significant challenges, we’ve managed to support the delivery of over 20 projects over the last two years.
