    Poundbury – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. New Town
      Poundbury is no ordinary town. The vision of HRH Prince Charles, this new town was aimed to enhance lives, be more environmentally friendly, create a blueprint for future building and is supported by the Duchy. Construction began in 1993 with a view to building 5,000 homes. 35% of homes will be affordable, rented or shared ownership allowing locals to remain living in the area rather than be forced to look for cheaper housing elsewhere.
    2. Green Green Grass of Home
      The site sits on 400 acres, 150 acres are designated for landscaping, parkland and farming, with 26,000 shrubs, 450 trees, grassed areas, play parks. There are also allotments, orchards and birdboxes throughout the town.
    3. Got Gas
      No drilling, no fossil fuels, Poundbury’s gas comes from a joint effort between the town and local farmers thanks to an anaerobic digester which produces 100% renewable bio-methane gas that comes from organic crops. With all homes being thermally efficient, they require less heating (therefore lower bills). The gas not only serves Poundbury, the excess goes into the national gas grid to provide for another 90,000 homes in Dorset. That’s 100% green energy and provides income for local farmers, who in turn plant crops that support bees, insects and other important wildlife.
    4. Health & Wealth
      Not only is the quiet green revolution taking place in Poundbury good for the town’s health (and that of its inhabitants), this has attracted green companies and eco start-ups. There are over 200 businesses, providing enough jobs for over half the population, half those businesses began life in Poundbury and over a third of them are run by women.
    5. Walk Don’t Vrum!
      The town is designed to be more friendly for walking and cycling, to encourage residents to leave the car at home (of course the garages of those homes are fitted with electric car charging points). Clever planning means it’s easy to walk from one end of Poundbury to the other and always remain in well-lit areas.
    6. In Good Taste
      In the town square (named after Charles’ grandmother, Queen Mother Square), an annual Dorset Food Festival takes place, celebrating and raising the profile of local grub. Poundbury itself produces a number of celebrated and award-winning local treats, including chocolate!
