As an urban extension to Dorchester, Poundbury is significantly contributing to the local economy. By the time of completion in 2025, the development is predicted to increase the local GVA (Gross Value Added) by £105m per year.
The latest business survey in 2019 found that over 2,300 people are working in 207 businesses. Integrating small workshop and retail spaces into larger blocks has encouraged a range of small independent, artisan businesses to establish and then thrive in Poundbury, alongside more established professional services and industrial businesses. Half of the businesses operating in Poundbury launched their businesses here and new ventures continue to open each year.
