Shore Road East

New & refurbished beach huts

Completed summer 2020

The Project

As a major gateway for people visiting Poole beaches, the project at Shore Road and here at Shore Road East offered the opportunity to create a greater sense of arrival and welcome to the area.

At Shore Road East 12 beach huts (nos 73-84) have been refurbished and a first floor extension built above, with 6 standard huts, and 2 premier beach huts with L shaped balconies.
