Draft Town Investment Plan
Our 'Town Deal' and Investment Plan
The government is investing £25 million in Boscombe as part of the Bournemouth Town Investment Plan under a new ‘Town Deal’.
We are one of 101 UK towns that is on track to share part of the total new 'Town Deal' which is worth £3.6 billion. This new government scheme will help improve where we live, work and enjoy, boost jobs and grow the local business community.
The council, in partnership with the Bournemouth Strategic Towns Fund Board is developing The Bournemouth Town Investment Plan which comprises a number of regeneration projects which will revitalise Boscombe town centre and the surrounding area.
"By 2030 Boscombe-Bournemouth (the regeneration area) will be connected, diverse, healthy and safe. Building on the area’s arts and creative sector as well as our built seaside heritage, there will be more jobs in a wider variety of sectors. The community will have greater access to good quality jobs, training, leisure activities and homes."
