Richard Carr has worked for the company for the past year, managing developments across the Poole area. In recent times he has spearheaded a project, which will see four properties in the exclusive area of Poole demolished and replaced with luxury flats.

The areas local paper, Bournemouth Echo, picked up the story because of the record breaking developer contributions that the development will make to the “cash strapped council”.

The four developments (74, 76, 78 and 80 Lilliput Road) will contribute totally £300,000 in social housing and a massive £1m in community infrastructure levy. The money will help the council improve areas of the community, whilst providing much needed funds for social housing.

Richard Carr said: “I am pleased we have managed to achieve this for Poole and still have a viable business model moving forward.

“Our latest development will help ease the burden of social housing on the local council, whilst the CIL contribution will help build new facilities for residents.”

Nigel Jacobs, planning policy and implementation manger, Borough of Poole said: “The Community Infrastructure Levy or CIL is applied to most new developments in Poole to help us fund infrastructure in the town.

“Each of the four sites on Lilliput Road will eventually contribute between £225,500 and £296,000 in CIL payments, which will go towards projects which protect the local harbour and heathland environments, and to support the development of the local area.”

The 36 luxury apartments are spread between four apartment buildings with nine flats each on 74, 76 and 78 and eight on number 80, each with its own terrace or small balcony.
