Durley Chine Environmental Hub

Opening Summer 2022, this new Environmental Innovation Hub, built to Passivhaus standards on the seafront at Durley Chine beach, houses a new kiosk and toilet facilities. It will feature exhibition and educational projects spearheading the elimination of single-use packaging along Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s beautiful seafront. This area has more Blue Flag beaches than any other UK local authority and is determined to create a wave of change to a circular seaside economy where refill and reuse is the norm. Durley Chine aims to connect people’s actions to our oceans, inspiring change that protects this incredible 15 miles of beautiful coastline. Durley Chine is a showcase for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s development as a low impact destination, where refill and reuse replace single-use. By reducing packaging and testing systems of reuse, the Hub aims to make it easier for seafront visitors to make environmentally sound choices.

Our Vision

Durley Chine’s mission is to help visitors understand the environmental impacts of packaging, waste and climate change on our fragile coasts and seas. Around 2,000 tons of waste is removed from Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s beaches every year. The Environmental Innovation Hub on the beach at Durley Chine will take a lead on recycling in public spaces and efforts to educate and change behaviours along the seafront. For example, if just 1 in 10 residents of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole refilled a water bottle just once a week, over a million plastic bottles a year would be saved.
