Chapman Lily Planning were delighted to hear about the launch of Future Places at the Regenerate South conference yesterday. Future Places is wholly owned by BCP Council and is charged with delivering the regeneration of key Council owned assets in Bournemouth and Poole. Cllr Phillip Broadhead made an uplifting presentation that emphasised the need for stewardship in order to create value over the medium-long term, rather than extract value in the short-term. Investment in infrastructure and place making will be key to optimising economic, social and environmental benefits for all.
Brett Spiller, Director at Chapman Lily Planning enthused: ‘Yesterday’s official launch presents an important milestone, with Future Places expected to deliver some quick wins but also fulfil a longer term enabling role. The launch coincided with the cessation of the party political conferences and seems of message with the levelling up agenda . I was delighted to speak to Gail Mayhew, Managing Director Designate who together with her team bring a wealth of talent and experience. Gail certainly has some very innovative ideas about delivery and how to bring stakeholders to the table. It’s a very exciting proposition – putting BCP Council at the cutting edge of regeneration!’.
