Walking in Poundbury

Economic Impact

In 2018, Dorset Council completed their latest economic impact assessment of Poundbury, which concluded that as at 2018, the Poundbury development had permanently increased the local GVA (Gross Value Added) by £98 million per annum (predicted to be £105m per annum when completed in c2025) and established 1,630 full-time equivalent jobs (1,760).

In addition, by 2025 the construction phases will have delivered an additional GVA of some £236 million and 4,950 person-years of employment.

Poundbury is currently home to some 3,800 people in a mix of private and affordable housing, as well as providing employment for some 2,300 people working in more than 207 shops, cafés, offices and factories. A further 550 are employed in construction across the site with many more self employed and at times working from home.
