The area to the north of the high street known as Town Centre North will be rejuvenated as the vibrant heart of the town. It will be the focus for major new, mixed-use developments with exceptionally designed streets, spaces and buildings. Town Centre North will become a successful go-to place that represents the best in urban design qualities enhancing Poole’s status as a top south coast destination of choice.
Work will start soon on the refurbishment of the Dolphin Shopping Centre’s internal mall, improvements to the public spaces and shop facades creating a stronger retail and food/beverage offer in Falkland Square and Kingland Crescent.
