Permission granted for Build-to-Rent scheme in Bournemouth

BCP Council’s planning committee has given planning consent to Summix Capital and Evolve Estates for a major new Build-to-Rent scheme in Bournemouth town centre.

The proposals would see the delivery of over 200 high-quality new homes available to rent, designed to meet the housing needs of the local area, coming in a range of sizes aimed at young professionals as well as families. These will be developed alongside new commercial facilities, retail space and landscaping improvements on land next to the Richmond Gardens Car Park. 

The site benefits from being close to existing shops, services and public transport links, while employment opportunities are also good in the area. In addition, 362 cycle spaces and car club parking is also included as part of the proposals in a bid to encourage sustainable travel. 

Stuart Black, development director for Summix Capital, said: “We’re pleased our proposals to redevelop the Richmond Gardens site with much-needed new homes have been approved by BCP Council.”

Last year, Summix Capital and Evolve Estates also received planning approval for a student scheme on the site, which will see delivery of a purpose-built student accommodation complex large enough to house 625 students.
