Poundbury, the urban extension to the county town of Dorchester, Dorset, is HRH Prince Charles’s vision of new 21st century communities. Designed around residents rather than cars, it is intended to be a sustainable community where it is possible to meet a higher proportion of daily needs on foot. The success, influence and regard for the development is widespread, industry professionals and architectural enthusiasts alike are regular visitors. The founding principles of Poundbury now form part of the British Governments Planning Guidance Note PPG3.
Within this developing community there are a plethora of amenities such as Waitrose, the Poet Laureate public house, restaurants, hairdressers, delicatessen and butchers, medical centre, dentist, garden centre and a range of unique and popular retail outlets. The Poundbury community actively engages in a host of well attended events including the annual food festival.
