CGI of Beach Box Park

Toft Steps Beach Box Park

Completed July 2023, all facilities operating

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 were demolished in March. They have been replaced with 3 x 40ft converted shipping containers, which were fabricated for us off-site by New Forest Containers of Lymington. The development includes a new toilet block and improvements to the public realm.

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 is available on a one-year lease for a start-up business in the BCP area.

The old cabins & toilet block were demolished in March, and the shipping containers delivered to site in April

Cladding applied and interior touch-ups  completed on site by New Forest Containers

What’s on offer

A 40 feet converted shipping container, cladded & insulated.

Fitted with insulation, laminate flooring, electrics, a water outlet, internal blinds and bifold doors that open directly on to our award-winning seafront.

Along with business support from the BCP Economic Development team and partners.
