£75m redevelopment plans
Premier Marinas has been granted planning permission for a £75m redevelopment of Devon’s Noss on Dart Marina.
Noss on Dart was bought by Premier in 2016 and consists of 37 acres of foreshore and woodland set on the bank of the River Dart opposite Dartmouth.
The site was formerly the Philip & Son shipbuilding yard but has operated as a marina and boatyard since shipbuilding stopped in the late 1990s with much of the site currently derelict.
“The redevelopment of Noss on Dart is hugely important to us,” said Premier’s CEO Pete Bradshaw. “We want to build something very special here, to create a sustainable place around the best marina in the UK.”
He added: “This is a glorious site and the majority of it will remain in our hands for a long time to come, so it really matters to us.”
Plans involve the creation of a new marina with 232 berths, a dry stack for 100 smaller motor craft, a boatyard with a 75-tonne boat hoist servicing private, fishing and commercial craft across South Devon, 21 marine trade commercial units, a 50-bedroom hotel, new car parking arrangements and a heritage centre to celebrate the site’s history.
Premier’s plans also include a passenger ferry link to Dartmouth.
Demolition of the site’s many derelict buildings will begin this autumn and will be followed by work on the replacement boatyard, car park and commercial buildings.
Renewal of the floating marina will start in the winter of 2019/20 and once completed, the development of the hotel, Philip’s building and public areas will go ahead.
It is anticipated work on these elements will be completed by mid 2022 with the majority of the residential development taking place afterwards.
