Poundbury is an urban development of the County Town of Dorchester, and is Prince Charles's vision of the development of new communities in the 21st century. Designed around the residents rather than their cars, it is intended to be a sustainable development where it is possible to meet a higher proportion of daily needs on foot, rather than relying on a car. Within walking distance there are Waitrose, The Duchess of Cornwall Hotel and Restaurant and an ever-growing range of bistros, coffee shops, beauty salons, dress shops, hairdressers, dentists, a medical centre, a garden centre and a mature Woodland Park.
