Conference Overview

The South Coast is currently buzzing and for several years now the area has gained in popularity as a development region – which is key to drawing in tourists and enhancing businesses. We have a strong panel that represents a significant part of development and regeneration in Bournemouth and the wider region including:

  • Michael Bibring; Director of Fresh Lime Developments. He’ll present above up and coming projects in the companies portfolio and share an overview of their current hotel build in Bournemouth with work set to begin this year on £40m 131-bedroom four star hotel, which will also include a sky bar and residential flats as part of the scheme.
  • Bill Cotton; Executive Director of Economy and Environment at Bournemouth Borough Council and Philip Broadhead; Cabinet Portfolio Councillor  for Local Government Reorganisation & Economic Growth. They’ll discuss the councils plans for the future with their Capital Strategy plan set to be approved by council at the end of February which will pave the way to further council investment in housing, schools, care homes, employment space and more. They’ve identified 16 council-owned sites in the town centre and they’re keen to engage with developers and those keen to be involved in the projects to kick-start future development in the town, and they’ll share an overview of their big Winter Gardens scheme.
  • Julian McLaughlin; Head of Growth and Infrastructure at Poole Borough Council. Poole has recently been given a big boost by the Housing Infrastructure Fund to support its vision to regenerate part of the town centre – including Kingland Road car park, Seldown car and coach park, and the Dolphin Swimming Pool site. The £134m project would see a new leisure centre and swimming pool, bus station, hotel, office space and more than 400 new homes being built. They’re set to begin their search officially in the Autumn for a delivery partner so it’s a great opportunity to meet with the Council and begin discussions.
  • Chris Ridge; Consultant for Bourne Asset Management. He’ll discuss their ever growing portfolio and what the future looks like for property, investment and more in the Bournemouth region.
  • James Gibson Fleming; Chair, Land and Property Committee at Talbot Village Trust. There are currently exciting plans to invest in the Talbot Village area, which will see new University buildings, enhanced campuses, transformations of historic cottages and better landscaping and green space. Darryl will discuss their involvement in the developments alongside the flagship projects to development a digital village and create a small business incubation unit in an enterprise hub.
