A Room with a View - Poole's Latest Housing Development


16th October 2019

Last week marked the opening of Nile Court, Sovereign’s new housing development at Holes Bay Road in Poole, which will provide 46 much-needed affordable homes in the centre of Poole.

Sovereign Housing Association met with Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole councillors, developers Drew Smith and Boyle and Summers Architects on 2 October to celebrate their partnership working and the grand opening of Nile Court, where residents have already starting moving in.

The success of this development was made possible through a collaborative partnership with the Local Authority who provided the land, Homes England who invested grant funding, and local contractor Drew Smith Limited, who helped deliver the scheme through many complex challenges.

Working on a small pocket of land between the bay and the railway, the nine storey building boasts sea views from every home and provides quality affordable homes within walking distance of the railway station, Poole’s main shopping centre and restaurants and bars. Nile Court has 20 two-bed homes and 10 one-bed homes for affordable rent, and there are 15 two-bed homes and one one-bed home for shared ownership.
