In the Northern Quadrant construction of the 350 homes has commenced.
Outline planning permission was granted by West Dorset District Council in December 2011 for the remainder of Poundbury (4ha), which will cover the northern and western perimeters.
Design of the final section, the North West Quadrant, is being prepared with construction planned to start in 2022 and anticipated to be completed by c2026. Poundbury will have then increased the population of Dorchester by about one quarter, with an eventual community of approximately 5,800 people.

When I set out on this venture, I was determined that Poundbury would break the mould of conventional housing development in this country, and create an attractive place for people to live, work and play. Many people said that it could never succeed but I am happy to say that the sceptics were wrong and it is now a thriving urban settlement alongside Dorchester.
