Wednesday 18th November from 4pm – 8pm at 41- 45 Poole Hill
(opp Koh Thai- below the stunning new premises of Canvas )
There is going to be a public consultation prior to the submission of a planning application for the proposed development of (ground floor) 41- 45 Poole hill, Bournemouth BH2 5PW.
Jennifer Tingay of Southbourne Brewing is hoping to redevelop the property that has been vacant and boarded up for the last 15 years! She is hoping to turn it into a brewery with visitors centre and public tap rooms. This requires change of use from A3 to mixed use A3 and A4 and she is inviting all residents, business owners & users to view the plans to obtain your feed back.
The meeting will be held on site, in the lower 4,700 sq ft floor(s) of the impressive grade II listed building that was formerly The Bournemouth School of Arts in about 1880 – from the street on its pediment, its crest still remains, above the windows. Those windows now being that of what is now the areas newest, large, stylish loft Bar, Restaurant and Night club - Canvase, (opened 23rd Oct 2015) The lower part still remaining boarded up – sometimes used as black boards for graffiti. Residents of the area might know it in the past as the “Jalarra” or “Bumbles Night club” building.
Jennifer, formerly the quality Manager at Ringwood brewery, started less than 2 years ago as a brewster in her own right and has received 2 awards for producing 4 permanent beers and a further 4 seasonal, all ready!
Tom Russell, owner of The Four Horseman ( with an impressive over 75 different craft beers on sale behind the bar) – further down the road in The Triangle, thinks it will not effect him in the slightest as they are so very different ( As also what will be The Brewhouse and Kitchen- the old Branksome) and believes as I do, it will only add to make The Triangle an outstanding area for traditional beer drinkers and can only bring more foot fall into the area.
Sunmonkey Tanning Salon is now again progressing well, near The Mad Cucumber vegan lounge.Scaffolding is now up and works are now progressing on what will, I believe be the areas New Mexican Restaurant owned by another well known “Triangle” entrepreneur. Conversion of the public toilets has begun again (rumored to be a new Taxi Rank?) and work is starting on the old Kodak building- a very large and exciting project for the area.
All great news for the area again! The Triangle, Bournemouth – A Better Place!
