A masterplan for Boscombe town centre

Skip to contents of guide

Phase One Masterplan

Our Masterplan project will create a new neighbourhood, right in the heart of Boscombe.

The delivery of this once-in-a-lifetime project will be in two phases.

The first phase will be led by the Strategic Towns Fund Board making this a project led by the community, for the community.

Phase two is a separate piece of work and will be delivered at a later date by the council’s urban regeneration company – FuturePlaces.

Phase one of the Boscombe masterplan will include proposals to revitalise the high street, providing green spaces and wider walkways, a new community centre, five retail kiosks, a health facility and new housing.

The work also includes four transport schemes to improve connectivity between the revitalised town centre, Pokesdown Railway Station and the seafront, creating a connected and vibrant area for residents, businesses and visitors, making journeys in and out of the area easier, safer and more attractive.

Update from our consultation on the Masterplan and local transport schemes

Earlier this year, we asked for your views on the masterplan and local transport schemes.

We would like to thank you for your involvement in the consultation, which helped shape our business case.

Where we are now

The business case for this exciting new development includes plans for:

  • 53 homes (77% affordable housing)
  • a community centre
  • a small park
  • a health facility
  • 72 additional public parking spaces. (146 spaces in total).

A later phase will deliver the remaining 27 homes and reduce the parking to 74 spaces.

This masterplan will offer a significant and one-off opportunity to kick-start the regeneration of Boscombe, creating a new neighbourhood right in the heart of the town centre. The community centre will deliver numerous economic, social, health and wellbeing benefits as will the proposed GP surgery and open space.

The business case is going ahead for Government approval. We will have timescales confirmed in 2023 for the start dates.
