Premier unveils Noss on Dart plans
UK: Premier Marinas is set to submit plans for the development of Noss on Dart Marina. The £75 million proposed investment in the site will be one of the largest infrastructure investments in the Dartmouth area for decades.
Wellcome Trust company Premier Marinas acquired Noss on Dart in March 2016 after the previous owner went into administration. The site comprises 37 acres (15ha) of valuable foreshore and woodland but Premier’s CEO Pete Bradshaw insists that Premier’s overriding interest lies in the marina. “We are unlike traditional developers in mixed use sites of this type as we are first and foremost marina owners and operators. We approach this project with the aspiration to deliver the UK’s finest marina and the location certainly warrants that.”
The detailed plans show a new marina layout for around 232 berths; a drystack for 100 or so smaller motor boats; 70 summer boat storage spaces – 100 in winter; and yard improvements including a new dock facility for lifting/launching boats with a 75 tonne boat hoist.
A hotel with 50 rooms, two restaurants and a spa are also planned.
Work on the marina, hotel and boatyard will start first and is expected to take three years. This will be followed by construction of residential property, which will help to fund construction of a new quay wall, public slipway, hoist bay, bridge improvements etc.
