Plans approved for Noss on Dart
UK: Premier Marinas has been granted planning permission for the redevelopment of Noss on Dart Marina in Devon and plans to invest £75 million in the site.
Noss on Dart was acquired by Premier in 2016 and comprises 37 acres (15ha) of foreshore and woodland set on the banks of the River Dart, just below Kingswear and opposite Dartmouth. The site was formerly a shipyard but has operated as a marina and boatyard since shipbuilding ceased in the late 1990s.
Much of the site is currently derelict and the existing marina infrastructure is in a poor state. Premier plans to create a waterfront hub with a new marina of around 232 berths; a drystack for 100 smaller motor boats; a boatyard with a 75-tonne boat hoist; 21 marine trade commercial units; a 50-room hotel with two restaurants and a spa; new car parking arrangements; and a Heritage Centre to celebrate the site’s history. A passenger ferry link to Dartmouth town centre, for access to shops, restaurants and places of historic interest will also be established.
Demolition of the site’s many derelict buildings has commenced, and work on the replacement boatyard, car park and commercial buildings will follow. Renewal of the floating marina is scheduled to begin in the winter of 2019/20.
