Poole High Rise Flats
AB Heritage was commissioned in advance of proposed recladding of four ten storey tower blocks in Poole. A Heritage Statement was required as the tower blocks formed part of the setting of the Poole Town Centre Conservation Area.
The tower-blocks had been constructed in the 1960s and the site visit identified that much of the existing cladding on all four towers was in relatively poor condition due to age and weathering.
Due to this it was considered that the proposals would result in a Minor Beneficial impact to the Conservation Area, as it would provide a more attractive backdrop than that provided by the poor condition of the existing cladding.
