CGI of Beach Box Park

Toft Steps Beach Box Park

Published February 2023, updated 9th March

The Project

The Beach Box Park in Boscombe is a £140,000 development funded Towns Fund, a government scheme created for towns to improve their economy. BCP Council secured almost £22million as part of the ‘Town Deal’ to turbo charge ambitious regeneration plans for Boscombe.

The existing derelict cabins, including a toilet block, on the development site will be demolished. We will be replacing them with 3 x 40ft converted shipping containers, which are being fabricated for us off-site by New Forest Containers of Lymington. The development includes a new toilet block and improvements to the public realm.

Demolition of the existing site is now complete, and delivery of the new units is imminent.

The old cabins & toilet block have now been demolished

Seafront units for local startups!

Our aim for this project is to establish a low-cost pathway for budding entrepreneurs, creating jobs and economic growth within leisure & tourism in Boscombe.

Each container will be available on a one-year lease for a start-up business in the BCP area. Expressions of Interest were invited through February, and are now closed.
