Premier’s Plans Approved For The Redevelopment of Noss on Dart Marina

20th August 2018

Premier Marinas has recently been granted planning permission for the redevelopment of Noss on Dart marina. The £75m proposed investment in the site will create a unique place of interest and activity at the heart of which will be the UK’s finest marina and boatyard.

Noss on Dart was acquired by Premier in 2016 and comprises 37 acres of foreshore and woodland set on the bank of the River Dart, just below Kingswear and opposite Dartmouth. The site was formerly the Philip & Son shipbuilding yard but has operated as a marina and boatyard since shipbuilding ceased in the late 1990s.

Currently, much of the site is derelict and the existing marina infrastructure is in a poor state. Premier’s plans will reinvigorate the site, creating a waterside place comprising a new marina with around 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 hotel with 50 rooms, two restaurants and a spa; 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 town with its shops, restaurants and historic places of interest.

To speed up delivery of the development, and in anticipation of planning consent for the main scheme, Premier has already commenced enabling development; a scheme to widen and strengthen the railway bridge providing access to the site has just been completed and works to create additional car parking in the woods above the site are underway.

Demolition of the site’s many derelict buildings will commence 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. Premier hopes to complete work on these core elements of the site by mid 2022 with the majority of the residential development taking place thereafter.

CEO Pete Bradshaw: ‘The redevelopment of Noss on Dart is hugely important to us. We want to build something very special here, to create a sustainable place around the best marina in the UK. After all, 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.’

Road Bridge Works at Noss on Dart Marina

13th March 2018

The works on the road bridge at Noss on Dart Marina are underway and will see the widening and strengthening of the road bridge to extend the weight capacity of the bridge to 45 tons. This will enable larger vessels to arrive and depart the South Coast marina on transport to and from other locations. This project represents an investment of just over £700,000 and is a key element in unlocking the future of Noss on Dart Marina. After the introduction and opening of the pedestrian bridge in 2017, this is the second major element in Noss on Dart Marina’s development by Premier Marinas.

General Manager at Noss on Dart Marina, Andy Osman, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning approval for site clearance and enlargement of the existing woodland car park and the creation of a new woodland car park to the north of the access road which will ultimately create up to 147 car parking spaces. This will provide additional car parking for berth holders, tenants and the contractors whilst the road bridge is closed.”

Planning application submitted for redevelopment of Noss-on-Dart

21st July 2017

We are pleased to let you know that we have submitted our application for the redevelopment of Noss-on-Dart Marina. Those of you who are familiar with the site will know that it’s in great need of regeneration, with many of the buildings being derelict. We are therefore proposing to invest £75m to create the finest marina; making it one of the largest infrastructure investments in the area for decades.

As you know, our plans have been drawn up after extensive consultation with the community, Harbour Authority and others and has produced a masterplan that we believe is right for the site and would bring investment to the local area. This would include the creation of between 150-200 jobs once the redevelopment has been completed.

Included in our plans are:

  • A new marina layout for around 232 berths plus a dry stack berthing option for 100 or so smaller motor craft
  • Onshore provision for the storage of 70 boats in summer and 100 in winter
  • 21 commercial units
  • New home for South Devon College
  • A new dock facility
  • 75 tonne boat hoist
  • Hotel with 50 rooms, two restaurants and spa
  • Passenger ferry link to Dartmouth
  • Reinterpretation of the Philips building, with Bistro café and heritage centre

At this stage we are only applying for outline approval for the residential development and if approved, we would then submit a further application at a later stage to agree the design and layout.

An outline of our proposal and the masterplan are available to view at Noss-on-Dart during office opening hours.

To see the full application and make your views known, please go to South Hams Council’s planning portal.  Your views will be important in helping the council make its decision.
